Re: Phantom Folder

I see. Well, this clears up a lot, actually. I may have broken it by removing anything samba-related from my system (either that or perhaps it's because their isn't a server on the network :?: ). This is what I get when I click on it: screenshot3.png It hasn't affected my ability to use my machine,...

Re: Phantom Folder

Windows Network is the label given to smb:/// . The people who create Linux believe that smb ( Samba in Linux ) is a vast conspiracy between Microsoft, the American NSA, and space aliens. They are unaware that samba is the default file sharing mechanism in desktop Linux ( you read that correctly ) ...

Re: where are caja shares defined ?

/var/lib/samba/usershares

You can see how all of them are configured at once using this command string:

Code: Select all

net usershare info --long

Re: Samba: On Demand CIFS Mounting of Shares

Thanks altair4, I was just struggling with this very issue and gave up. Then discovered this excellent information. With this info I was able to accomplish almost exactly what I wanted. This may be off topic, but is there a way to accomplish this same behavior using autofs? What I am trying to acco...

Re: Samba: On Demand CIFS Mounting of Shares

YES :-) /media/share works. No idea why. For fun I'll try /mnt/share again. (didn't work) You missed the subtlety of what I posted: ** Create a mount point for the share. --- Place the mount point under /media [will also work in your home directory as in /home/altair/Share] --- This will induce a u...

Re: SMB/Samba timeout change ??

In my previous post I mentioned that the samba client process ( which the file manager, gvfs, and gigolo use ) by default use SMB1 to make a connection. It's "chatty" and can cause disconnects and slow file transfers when connecting to a more current samba server. THere's two ways out of t...

Re: SMB/Samba timeout change ??

If you are doing everything by ip address you have another option: ** Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf ** Under the workgroup = WORKGROUP line add a new line: client max protocol = SMB3 ** Restart smbd sudo service smbd restart or if you are connected to many shares reboot the box. Now you don't have to cha...

Re: SMB/Samba timeout change ??

I've never experienced your issue but it's probably because I don't use samba this way. I connect to a share when needed and unmount it when I'm done. How are you currently connecting to the Windows File Server? Do you connect to it from your Linux file manager or perhaps Gigolo? Or do you do a cifs...

Re: Samba server network access not working

Did you add the valid users to the samba password database?

Code: Select all

sudo smbpasswd -a girish

Code: Select all

sudo smbpasswd -a aimcomp1

And did you allow aimcomp1 read / write access to the folder?

Code: Select all

ls -dl /home/girish/share

To restore:

Re: Samba server network access not working

I configured Samba and am able to see the samba share from Windows. You have no share defined in smb.conf. Maybe you created it with your file manager. Please post the output of the following command: net usershare info --long Side Note: You have this listed in smb.conf: workgroup = Homegroup There...

Re: not able to access linux mint with Hostname from windows 10

Another possibility: Windows 10 is the first Windows operating system that speaks mDNS natively so you should be able to do this in Win10:

Code: Select all

ping MintDesktop1.local

The .local attached to the end of the host name is the mDNS part.
