Re: SAMBA won't show on network...

I have one question : What operation systems are on the machines trying to connect to this box? And one suggestion : Follow these steps: [1] Never use gadmin-samba again for as long as you live. Run the following command to find out why: testparm -s [2] Make sure you have a file at this location ( ...

Re: SAMBA Share Permissions Problem [SOLVED]

For reasons unknown MATE does not install a package that would allow you to create a share through caja: sudo apt install caja-share I don't think that's enough though ... I think you need to close caja and then reopen it ... or maybe logoff and logon again ... or maybe make a blood sacrifice ... fo...

Re: SAMBA Share Permissions Problem

The permissions for Wrong number of arguments prevent other users from accessing this share ** That is a poorly worded error message isn't it? ** The reason you cannot find anything searching the web is because that error message is unique to Mint ( as in not Ubuntu ). ** You got that error message...

Re: Cannot connect to Samba shares from other PCs on the network

Sorry, I cannot reproduce your symptoms. Maybe if you disabled your firewall? I wouldn't be too suprised if Win10 cannot "discover" your Mint server. If you have kept your Win10 box up to date it has smb1 disabled on the client side and Win10 cannot discover anything by its netBIOS name. You would h...

Re: Unable to share a folder or printer

Everything you posted is exactly the way it should look. I have no idea why it's not working for you. At a minimum I would disable all firewalls if you have them enabled sudo ufw disable and make sure smbd is running sudo service smbd restart I did do a search on this result because I've never seen ...

Re: Unable to share a folder or printer

Ignore this part. I thought you said Mint19 not Mint18: The version of samba in Mint19 registers the mDNS name ( avahi ) to the rest of the network automatically. I'm not sure what happens when you also include a samba.service file in /etc/avahi/services on top of that. Before making any other chang...

Re: Cannot connect to Samba shares from other PCs on the network

There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with your setup although you should try not to add share definitions to smb.conf and then create shares in Nemo ( the net usershare shares ). In this particular case they match. My initial guess is that you have an encrypted home directory. All of your share...

Re: Attempting to login to a Win10 laptop

Is it at all possible that these Win10 machines are all running on their "Public Network" settings not their "Private Network" settings?

If you go to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center does it display your "active" network as Private or Public?

But do the above only if you are feeling lucky. We're talking about laptops here right. The darn things may end up anywhere unless you keep a close eye on 'em.

Re: Attempting to login to a Win10 laptop

Just a guess since I don't use your app but I betcha it's because Win10 disabled smb1 and that is the only way the asus fm can access it.

Re: (SOLVED) Unable to connect to network share

Altair, I have a final question. Could this be used to set up a central /home for all my machines? I'm the only one here so there's no danger of 2 people trying to open the same file. I have never done that so I'm not sure. I can see a "Documents" folder for example shared across many clients but a...

Re: Unable to connect to network share

If your share is mounted unmount it: sudo umount /home/larry/backup Edit /etc/fstab and remove sec=ntlm so that your line looks like this: //192.168.42.3/larry_home /home/larry/backup cifs uid=larry,credentials=/home/larry/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8 0 0 I don't think this matters but the credent...

Ha Ha. I meant that if you allows samba trough the firewall on the server end the client will not be blocked from discovering itself because of a old samba port issue.
