I am trying to connect my machine to my work's entirely windows network and I am having a few issues:
- Whenever I try to access the server, the authentication dialog just keeps popping back up.
- I cannot connect to the printers (it says connecting to device failed)
I have tried setting up samba, winbind, kerberos, likewise open all to no avail. I have a feeling I am just setting them up wrong.
My nautilus shows this when I go to Network > Windows Network > MASTERMAGNETS
I can ping both MASTERMAGNETS.LOCAL and 192.168.0.2 after modifying my
james@jamesmaddison:~$ cat /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost jamesmaddison 192.168.0.2 MASTERMAGNETS.LOCAL 192.168.0.50 Sharp-Printer # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback fe00::0 ip6-localnet ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
I believe that's the correct domain (not sure if that's the correct term) as when I do
nslookup MASTERMAGNETS.LOCAL I get the following:
james@jamesmaddison:~$ nslookup MASTERMAGNETS.LOCAL Server: 192.168.0.2 Address: 192.168.0.2#53 Name: MASTERMAGNETS.LOCAL Address: 192.168.0.3 Name: MASTERMAGNETS.LOCAL Address: 192.168.0.2
It all worked fine before I reinstalled Ubuntu and now I just cannot get access to the server.
All help is appreciated, I need to get this working or I fear I will be forced to develop in a windows environment :(
