Using samba


Just started with samba. What I want is a disk Z on windows machine located on a linux server. Now i am trying to access samba client from linux server.

Quote:
[cameraman@dev.linux]> smbclient \\\\dev.linux\\tmp
Server not using user level security and no password supplied.
Receiving SMB: Server stopped responding
tree connect failed: Call returned zero bytes (EOF)

[cameraman@dev.linux]> cat /etc/samba/smb.conf

[global]

workgroup = MSHOME
netbios name = dev.linux
hosts allow = mynote
security = user

[share1]

path = /tmp

[share2]
path = /root/camera_set
what's wrong?

Might be because firewall is blocking the connection. Stop the firewall and try again, if it works then we can make exceptions in firewall for samba

did you give your users a samba password? you can do this by typing in smbpasswd <username>? That would be the first thing to try if you have not already.

ok try
Code:
smbclient \\\\localhost\\tmp -u <enter username>
make sure that user is the same one that you just ran smbpasswd on.

you can also verify everything by running
Code:
smbclient -L <server ip address>

Ok this is what happens when you deprive yourself of sleep. I forgot that you actually want to connect to the share name. so you need to replace tmp with share1.

IE
smbclient \\\\localhost\\tmp

with

smbclient \\\\localhost\\share1

You should also be able to connect to share2 that same way. Looks like share2 points to /root/camera_set

The names of the share can of course be changed by editing the share names between the bracket.

[share1]
path = /tmp

[share2]
path = /root/camera_set

to say
[mytmp]
path = /tmp

[camera]
path = /root/camera_set

course you would then tell smbclient to connect to mytmp or camera

Code:
smbclient \\\\localhost\\mytmp
Just wanted to add that tid bit of information just in case you haven't made it that far.

try using dev.linux, I just have a habbit of refering to localhost when I am trying to connect to something that is local to the server that I am working on. Just remember that it should be

Code:
smblicent \\\\dev.linux\\share1  or share2
if you are getting any errors post them and we will get your working.

I think it is because when you are connecting with the actual machine name it looks at it a little differently. So you will want to put a -u <username> after that so that it will prompt you for a user that is allowed access.

Try using this.
Code:
smbclient \\\\dev.linux\share1 -u <username>
substitute <username> for the user that your ran smbpasswd for.
