Installed UBUNTU-server 12.04 and configured /etc/samba/smb.conf as:
#======================= Global Settings ======================= [global] workgroup = HEMMA server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu) security = user wins support = yes dns proxy = no log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 syslog = 0 panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d encrypt passwords = no passdb backend = tdbsam obey pam restrictions = yes unix password sync = yes passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* . pam password change = yes map to guest = bad user ############ Misc ############ usershare allow guests = yes #======================= Share Definitions ======================= [printers] comment = All Printers browseable = no path = /var/spool/samba printable = yes guest ok = no read only = yes create mask = 0700 # Windows clients look for this share name as a source of downloadable # printer drivers [print$] comment = Printer Drivers path = /var/lib/samba/printers browseable = yes read only = yes guest ok = no [Bilder original] comment = Original bilder path = /mnt/bilder/org browseable = yes read only = no guest ok = no create mask = 0755 [Bilder publika] comment = Bilder för allmän visning path = /mnt/bilder/public browseable = yes read only = yes guest ok = yes [Musik] comment = Musik path = /mnt/music/public browseable = yes read only = yes guest ok = yes
I have a network setup around a 4G router "HUAWEI B593" where some computers are connected by WIFI and others by LAN.
The server is connected by LAN.
On one computer running windows XP I can see the server but are not allowed to acces them.
On another computer on the WIFI-net running win7 I cannot see the server at all but I can ping the server and I can see the smb-protocoll is running when sniffing with wireshark.
I don't primarily want to use passwords, computers on the lan and wifi should be able to connect without any login-procedure.
I'm sure my config is not sufficient but have hard to understand how I should do. Theres a lot of descriptions on the net but most is old and none have been of any help.
I'm also confused by the fact that I can not se the sever on my win7-machine even though it communicates with the samba-server.
Would be very happy if anyone could spread some light over this mess.
