Question How do I let Linux see Windows Shared Dirctories


Within my test bed arena, WIN2000 pro can see the Linux shared folder, but I can't figure out how to view the Windows shared folders from Linux.
Can anybody help?

What are you using to see linux, samba?
You can always use the smbclient command. Look at man smbclient or smbclient --help for options.

smbclient -L <win system IP> -U <win system username>

will give you a list of shares

smbmount //winsystemip_or_name/sharename /<mount point> -o username=<win username>

will mount the win share on /<mountpoint>

If you are using RedHat, you should find Network Server menuitem when you clock the gnome button on the toolbar.
LinNeighborhood is another option.

session request failed (called name not present)

Error returning browse list: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

What (called name) is it looking for?
The shared directory is full open access to everybody, so I don't understand access denied.

I read the man pages and took some notes, but I didn't see anything about (called name). Maybe I missed it, tried to specify computer name as -n <NetBIOS name> that didn't work either. Also tried to specify IP via -I <IP Address> nope, nodda, nothing.

Any suggestions????????

When you make a connection to a w2k machine you need to add the domain name to the user name
eg
mount -t smbfs -o username="UNISYS02\Administrator",passwd=Alpha //comp02/shares /mnt/smb
where UNISYS02 is the domain name

Tried that with the following result,
1931: tree connect faled: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed

Does that mean Win2k is not allowing access? That's strange I selected the folder to be shared, with total access.

Try using the ip adres of the w2k box
eg
mount -t smbfs -o username="UNISYS02\Administrator",passwd=Alpha //xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/shares /mnt/smb

I did that as well same error as post#6

First thing that happens is that it tries to start a session;

1970: session request to XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX failed (Called name not present)
1970: session request to XXX failed (Called name not present)

Then it asks for a;
Password: [enter]

Then;
Anonymous login successful

Then;
1970: tree connect failure: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess ( Access denied. )

Finally;
SMB connection failed

Does that help any?

add the ip adress to the /etc/hosts file
eg
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx comp02

now you can use

mount -t smbfs -o username="UNISYS02\Administrator",passwd=Alpha //comp02/shares /mnt/smb

Actually I figured it out, it was the Win2K box did not recognize the Linux box as a valid user.
So I added a new user to the list, then I was able to mount the shared folder with the new user name I created.

After that I created the linux box as a proxy server. After a little reading and debugging the server is up and running beautifully.

Now I'm moving on to another server package.

This is actually getting easier to work with LINUX, once I started to get the hang of it.

Thanks to everybody for the help and advice.

What type of security are you running on the Win2k box and how did you set up the proxy server?

Glad you're enjoying linux. I know I do.

I'm not sure what your asking exactly.
Win2k security is standard... I just needed to add a user and log into the machine as that user.
The Proxy server took some do'in though. I had to do alot of reading on how and why things need to be setup. Even then I had to do alot of trouble shooting to get the damn thing to startup. Once I did that though it purrs like a kitten, and everyone on the LAN gets HTTP service. Overall security is handled by the firewall on the proxy server to protect the LAN.

Is that what you were asking?

how do I add a space in the sharename?

like the share name is All Photos, if I type it in like that, I get "Could not resolve mount point Photos", if I try using %20 for space, I get no such share. is there a way I can do this without renaming the shared folder in windows?

Well, first try using the -L option to list the shares. Then just copy what it shows you as the share name and you should be good. I want to say it eliminates the spaces but I can't remember for sure and I can't test it right now to verify it.
So, smbclient -L <ip_address or machine_name>
give password and view the list.
Then, smbclient //machine/share -U <username>%<password> or whatever format you prefer. I think that will help you.

Well it shows it with a space, so it'll say "All Photos", so I still have the same problem.
