Angry Win 2000 cannot open LINUX box


After a bit of adjustment on win2k ,now I'm able to bring up the LINUX box.
____________________________________________________
The problem is I wanna get trough the box., cant see anything. //network path was not found.
____________________________________________________

Samba,lisa,NFS daemon are running OK on Fedora 4.
At first I cannot open the win2000 folder, from a lot of learning now I'm able to browse the Win2K.

So if there's someone can help me overcome this, I'll be grateful.

Many thanks in ADV.

So, are you trying to see your Linux Samba server from your Windows machine, or the other way around, or what?

Yup.

I run 2 compt on LAN
I can mount+wipe+delete+paste Win2k drive(folder) from my FEDORA desktop.

On the win2k machine I can do nothing on LINUX box, can't see anything.

This is very long story..........


[global]

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = NOVELL

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = Samba Server

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
; hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.

# if you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this
printcap name = /etc/printcap

# It should not be necessary to spell out the print system type unless
# yours is non-standard. Currently supported print systems include:
# bsd, sysv, plp, lprng, aix, hpux, qnx
; printing = cups

# This option tells cups that the data has already been rasterized
cups options = raw

# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must add this to /etc/passwd
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
; guest account = pcguest

# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
# all log information in one file
# log file = /var/log/samba/log.smbd

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
max log size = 50

# Security mode. Most people will want user level security. See
# security_level.txt for details.
; security = user
# Use password server option only with security = server
; password server = <NT-Server-Name>

# Password Level allows matching of _n_ characters of the password for
# all combinations of upper and lower case.
; password level = 8
; username level = 8

# You may wish to use password encryption. Please read
# ENCRYPTION.txt, Win95.txt and WinNT.txt in the Samba documentation.
# Do not enable this option unless you have read those documents
; encrypt passwords = yes
; smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

# The following are needed to allow password changing from Windows to
# update the Linux system password also.
# NOTE: Use these with 'encrypt passwords' and 'smb passwd file' above.
# NOTE2: You do NOT need these to allow workstations to change only
# the encrypted SMB passwords. They allow the Unix password
# to be kept in sync with the SMB password.
; unix password sync = Yes
; passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
; passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*

# on a per machine basis. The %m gets replaced with the netbios name
# of the machine that is connecting
; include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%m

# Most people will find that this option gives better performance.
# See speed.txt and the manual pages for details
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192

# Configure Samba to use multiple interfaces
# If you have multiple network interfaces then you must list them
# here. See the man page for details.
; interfaces = 192.168.12.2/24 192.168.13.2/24

# Configure remote browse list synchronisation here

; remote announce = 192.168.1.255 192.168.2.44

# Browser Control Options:
# set local master to no if you don't want Samba to become a master
# browser on your network. Otherwise the normal election rules apply
; local master = no

# OS Level determines the precedence of this server in master browser
# elections. The default value should be reasonable
; os level = 33

# Domain Master specifies Samba to be the Domain Master Browser. This
# allows Samba to collate browse lists between subnets. Don't use this
# if you already have a Windows NT domain controller doing this job
; domain master = yes

# Preferred Master causes Samba to force a local browser election on startup
# and gives it a slightly higher chance of winning the election
; preferred master = yes

# Enable this if you want Samba to be a domain logon server for
# Windows95 workstations.
; domain logons = yes

# if you enable domain logons then you may want a per-machine or
# per user logon script

; logon path = \\%L\Profiles\%U

# All NetBIOS names must be resolved to IP Addresses
# 'Name Resolve Order' allows the named resolution mechanism to be specified
# the default order is "host lmhosts wins bcast". "host" means use the unix
# system gethostbyname() function call that will use either /etc/hosts OR
# DNS or NIS depending on the settings of /etc/host.config, /etc/nsswitch.conf
# and the /etc/resolv.conf file. "host" therefore is system configuration
# dependant. This parameter is most often of use to prevent DNS lookups
# in order to resolve NetBIOS names to IP Addresses. Use with care!
# The example below excludes use of name resolution for machines that are NOT
# on the local network segment
# - OR - are not deliberately to be known via lmhosts or via WINS.

# behalf of a non WINS capable client, for this to work there must be
# at least one WINS Server on the network. The default is NO.
; wins proxy = yes

instead of setting up samba you could use winSCP

http://winscp.net/eng/download.php#download2

i am not saying do not learn samba, but in the mean time this tool is far more efficient as it always works as long as you have ssh running on your linux box and does not rely on MS pathetic attempt at networking to work properly.

Well thank you for plug-in.

I'd prefer to learn SAMBA server, I must know what I'm capable of.
I dont really like MS either.

I think I would solved this LAN problem I supposed,hopefully.

I'm just expecting someone on this board gives explanation on doing so.

After comparing your config file to mine, I noticed that there are some missing variables in yours. I don't know if any of these will make much of a difference, but I have some things you could try.

Try adding public = yes to your global section.

Wich section? you mean this;

[global]
; public = yes
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = NOVELL

Still can't access.

I give alias to Netbios name UNIX to LINUX

now I have 3 box ;LINUX P1 UNIX, yet still cannot access.//network path was not found.

Yes, that is exactly where public = yes should be, but you commented it out. In Samba, # and ; are both read as comments.

Let's skip that for the moment.

Today I can open the compact Flash from win.
\home are not visible or accesible.

The CF contain DOS FS.
I assumed that LINUX directories are not visible to window, what do ya think?

I'm sharing this;

/media/CF
This works out

media/sda(Removable HDD)
This is not accesible

Although they're the same and only 1 device attach.

Then perhaps the configuration is not the issue. I don't think that it is that Windows cannot read Linux partitions. I run a file server that supports both FTP and SMB, all the partitions on this server are ext3. I used to run a Samba server with ReiserFS as well. I don't believe it is a filesystem issue.

Have you checked to make sure that the user that the Samba server runs as can read sda?

I thought you'll make that question.
I've checked, it's all the same 'permission'
