Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the following Configuration:

Media PC with Ubuntu 12.04 which has an external disk connected via usb. The external Disk has two Partitions, one for Data and one for Media. Additionally the Media-PC has two internal Partitions for Media and Data.

I accomplished to mount all partitions mentioned above by adding them to fstab in the way I wanted.

My goal is it to access the named partitions from my working laptop from different accounts.

Therefore I shared the partitions with nautilus on the media-pc. I am now able to access the shared files via smb//:mediapcname from my account (which is su).

But now I have two problems:

When I access a shared folder/partition everything is ok. I can access the subfolders and so on. Then I can access a second folder in the same way. But always when trying to access a third location I am "Unable to access location....connection timed out". I've tried it out and it is not depending on one specific location. It's always the third one which gives me the error.

Second thing is that I was not able to access the shared folder from a 'normal' user account.

Would be nice if someone could support here.

I have to confess that I am not really knowing what I am doing. What I've done so far was painful collected from different places, mainly from here, which I have to say is a very useful forum. Can someone advise good literature about the network-shares-topic?

Thanks a lot in advance...
