    need samba.conf file that comes with 14.04 64 bit

    I purged mine and have ziltch.
    Maybe I can get things working like they were before I installed samba and uninstalled samba and now reinstalled samba.

    here is my samba.conf, nothing

    Or I dont know, I have no idea.

    miniDLNA was working till I did all the above. Now no client can get access.

    Re: need samba.conf file that comes with 14.04 64 bit

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ho...%20Brief%20Way!

    I followed this guide, but not working.
    I tried viewing a share from win7, but get a login window and it asks for a password.
    And I dont know what password as the samba password does not work.
    Would the 'network password' that win7 wants be the smb password from this guide???
    Who knows!

    here is my smb.conf

    Code:
    #
    # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
    #
    #
    # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
    # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
    # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which 
    # are not shown in this example
    #
    # Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
    # commented-out examples in this file.
    #  - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
    #    differs from the default Samba behaviour
    #  - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
    #    behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
    #    enough to be mentioned here
    #
    # NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
    # "testparm" to check that you have not made any basic syntactic 
    # errors.

    Re: need samba.conf file that comes with 14.04 64 bit

    I figure it is foobared. Easiest thing is to reinstall OS later date when it is more ready.
    I dont absolutely have to have file sharing working.

    Several ubuntu Os's ago I also had this problem and it took dedicated multi day help from one of the guru's on the network forum to make it work.
    Back then I realized samba is just too hard and today is not any better.

    Re: need samba.conf file that comes with 14.04 64 bit

    I had to add this above the #### Networking #### line to get my file sharing working.
    # What naming service and in what order should we use to resolve host names
    # to IP addresses
    name resolve order = lmhosts wins bcast host

    Re: need samba.conf file that comes with 14.04 64 bit

    Some thing still wrong.
    I added the line and

    Code:
    scott@scott-P5QC:~$ sudo restart smbd
    [sudo] password for scott: 
    smbd start/running, process 14292
    scott@scott-P5QC:~$ sudo service smbd restart
    smbd stop/waiting
    smbd start/running, process 14408
    scott@scott-P5QC:~$
    And still get no access from win7 to this ubuntu pc

    Since I lost the sharing tab in file manager completely gone away, I assume my system is foobar.

    I too am having Samba file sharing problems...running Xubuntu 13.10 and 14.04....no problems with 13.10 or 14.04 to 13.10 but no luck from 14.04 to anything...13.10 or 14.04 on multiple machines...it dropped for me from when I installed 14.04....I check all the usual suspects....accounts, passwords, encryption and all seemed well.
    cheap hardware....LOTS of it

    Re: need samba.conf file that comes with 14.04 64 bit

    In the section [homes] under share definitions, *everything* is normally commented out in the default smb.conf. Try commenting out the lines:

    read only = yes
    create mask = 0700
    directory mask = 0700
    valid users = %S

    though I think the valid users = %S is the critical one.

    Since [homes] is itself commented out, this makes the entry global. I *think* this means that a share named Videos can only be accessed by a user named Videos, though others more knowledgeable about samba may care to comment. I guess if this was the default, it may be a bug?
