Re: Sharing between two MINT 19 desktops

Sounds to me that you didn't create any shares on BASEMENT. They would either be in /etc/samba/smb.conf itself - and the output of testparm -s would tell you that. Or they were created using caja - and the output of net usershare info --long would tell you that. If BASEMENT is also running MATE and ...

Re: [solved] setup samba share to windows 10

Just an update. There is an open issue - at least as of this writing - at the guthub home of wsdd: https://github.com/christgau/wsdd/issues/18 It looks like the developer as a workaround has decided to do something closer to what I suggested above: You can also add a line like ExecStartPre=/bin/slee...

Re: Mint 19.3 showing triple share of one SMB to other linux

Um ... you know ... there is another way to access from another Linux box your Mint samba server and it's the equivalent of a "map" in Windows. It's called cifs. An example - to be done on the Linux client to this server : [1] Install cifs-utils - I never know if Mint installs this by default: sudo ...

Re: Mint 19.3 showing triple share of one SMB to other linux

If I understand your information correctly, I can't get rid of the "(SMB)" share icon the Linux machines don't need without affecting Windows connections negatively I think? (yes/no) Re-reading again I think I am confused on this point, it is the "(SMB)" icon that isn't necessary? On Cin 64 that is...

Re: Mint 19.3 showing triple share of one SMB to other linux

What we have here is an overlap of something from the last century ( NetBIOS ) and something from this century ( mDNS or Avahi ). The icon labeled with the SMB at the end is mDNS and is only visible to another Linux or MacOS box and I'm assuming is the result of you adding an avahi service file at /...

Re: Adding users to usershare_acl

I honestly and truly cannot reproduce your symptoms. Unless I also have usershares out there that stipulate read only. If you have any files in the /var/lib/samba/usershares directory delete them.

Re: Cannot see lmde3 pc on network

All of the "Elements.." shares will only be accessible to dad so unless you are providing dads username and samba password you will not gain access. In fact the client machine would not even know it's there. The same thing would happen to the "Shared" share if you encrypted your home directory. Um ....

Re: Cannot see lmde3 pc on network

Didn't see your smb.conf before I posted ... You have no shares defined in smb.conf. Did you create them in Nemo?

Code: Select all

net usershare info --long
And btw are all your other machines in this range:
hosts allow = 127.0.0.0/8 10.10.1.0/24

Re: Cannot see lmde3 pc on network

So I downloaded LMDE3 and am running it in Live mode. Installed samba, created a share in smb.conf and .. um ... yep .... it's nowhere t be found in my network. Looks like the version of samba in LMDE3 doesn't do this automatically but you can fix that by doing it yourself: [1] Create a file at /etc...

Re: Seem to have lost Ownership of Disk

Please post the output of the following command: ls -al /mnt Altair4, here is the first lot keith@keith-System-Product-Name:~$ lss -al /mnt Command 'lss' not found, did you mean: ls and lss are two different commands. There is nothing wrong with your fstab - outside of using Disks to generate it.

Re: Adding users to usershare_acl

user1 already has write access to the folder on the Linux box. ls -dl /disks/ExternalMedia will verify that all users on the Linux box have read write access to that folder and everything in it. There was no need to use uid / gid in fstab if all you wanted was write access - and the partition was NT...

Re: [solved] setup samba share to windows 10

OK. I got the idea from a problem report of this in GitHub ( https://github.com/christgau/wsdd/issues/23 ). There it was a change to the code but mine is to add a sleep command in the systemd service. It ain't pretty but it seems to work repeatedly in Xubuntu. Edit /etc/systemd/system/wsdd.service a...

Re: [solved] setup samba share to windows 10

I'm not smart enough to have come up with that. Steffen Christgau over at GitHub was the one that came up with it.

At best I just listed the steps to make it more Ubuntu specific.

Re: setup samba share to windows 10

Windows 10 - if you kept it up to date - can't discover anything using NetBIOS because it disabled smb1 on the client side. I suggest one of two options: [1] You can still connect to the Mint server but have to ask for it by name: On the mint machine find your exact host name with this command: host...

Have your tried right-clicking on the green-hyphen icon and selecting "Info" or maybe "Properties"?
If I had a green line I'd probably just click on it and hope for the best.

Re: home networking

Following what I could make of what I read I installed openssh-server and ssh on both pcs and configured the firewalls to allow tcp on all interfaces for a range of local IP addresses
And what about SSH itself:

Code: Select all

sudo ufw allow OpenSSH
