cannot connect an Ubuntu client to a Debian server
 
Hi all,
New in LINUX, but thanks for allowing me to use Linux with the support team like you great people with wonderful settings available in the Internet to rescue immediately!

I have installed a Debian Server in which i have run a Webmin in Web interface.
This look pretty good because I have Internet connection through this server.

I have a series of Ubuntu client PC which I wish to connect them into that Debian Server.
Can you help me in connecting these Ubuntu PC into the Debian Server?
I would appreciate you to help me in an example as follows:
First PC name : groupe9
And Debian Server: debian-server

First you have to decide what services your debian server have to provide to your ubuntu clients. eg web- mail- file- etc. services

The main service needed now is File services.

First I would like to add Ubuntu Client to a server.
********************************************************************
Doing that in Windows I am used to it.
1rst. Login as local admin on Window Client PC>change the Window Client PC name>restart
2nd. With Network Administrator details follow the step when click right on the System properties>Network ID>....>restart and that PC is recognized by Server with the Domain Name uploaded in the Wizard.
********************************************************************
How can this be done with Linux Operating System?

Is it a plug and play?
I realize that it is not only that or might I missed some setting up...............
I have a webmin installed in the Debian Server and I have already create user accounts. Unfortunately using one of the account from the Ubuntu client : Error appear: Authentication Failed....
Though this happen I can still browse the Internet as a local administrator and as a network administrator in the Ubuntu Client PC.
Could you come to a rescue??????

Other services might be regarded as the 2nd Stage (mail and web)...

Georges.

Webbing is a web interface so you don't need to be a particular user on Windows or Ubuntu. You need to authenticate as the a user with admin rights on the deviant server.

It sounds like you are using the debian host as a Samba server. You need to provide more details, such as if it is a domain controller. If so you need the pro-versions of Windows to join a domain. You should also post your smb.conf file.

Your inability to log in sounds like a webmin issue and not Samba.

Samba docs include Using Samba. It describes using an AD type system. Samba 3 works better as an ST styled domain controller. Without your sub.conf, we can't tell which you are doing.
