I am currently doing this on a fairly old box using Ubuntu server and BitTorrent Sync. It was my first Ubuntu Server installation which was much easier than I expected. BitTorrent Sync was a snap to set up, can be easily administered remotely on both instances, syncs almost instantly with no intervention. I don't think the backup server even has Samba ...

While the accepted answer is correct, you can now mount a folder within a samba share with help from 3 packages: samba-client samba-common cifs-utils These are CentOS base repo packages (sorry, no longer an Ubuntu user so can't check) but I'm confident there's something similar for Ubuntu.

The manpage explains this quite clearly. Quoting from man hostname: -d, --domain Display the name of the DNS domain. Don't use the command domainname to get the DNS domain name because it will show the NIS domain name and not the DNS domain name. Use dnsdomainname instead. So domainname will show the NIS domain name, you need to use ...

Use "dnsdomainname", not "domainname": domainname - show or set system's NIS/YP domain name ... dnsdomainname - show the system's DNS domain name Source: HOSTNAME(1) ("man domainname")

[SOLVED] After many attempts to solve it, I finally hit the target. Winbind is already installed (through Samba), but, for some reason, PlayonLinux cannot use/detect it. The solution is: 1.- Perform a clean install of Lubuntu. 2.- Update the system through the System Updater of Lubuntu (in System Tools). You must have a internet working connection. If you do ...

In order to get around this issue which is a windows issue you will need to add some different "hosts" at least in name in your windows host file. 192.168.0.100 server1alias1 server1alias1 192.168.0.100 server1alias2 server1alias2 After that you can login using the different information. \\server1alias1\folder1 as user user1 ...

The solution is simple: Change the following 2 lines in your samba config: # wins support = no ; wins server = w.x.y.z to: wins support = yes # wins server = w.x.y.z and everything should be fine for the Windows machine too!

14.10 is a version of Ubuntu with a shorter support period. Problems are solved more quickly on this version, but it also has more problems. For stability, always choose LTS versions. See this Q&A for more info. Furthermore, copy-paste or cut-paste should make no difference, however the way you remove the USB disk has an impact. If you just yank it ...

Well, stupid me. I forgot to modify the fstab file. If anyone has the same problem as me then this is how I solved it. Find your drive you want to mount by using sudo fdisk -l I found that my device is named /dev/sdb1 so I then typed sudo vim /etc/fstab and enter in the following at the end of the page. (insert, esc :wq!) /dev/yourdevicehere ...

One simple note. Look for "obey pam restrictions" parameter. By default it is OFF or NO or FALSE, but should it be turned ON explicitly, and the umask takes effect! I lost about a week, trying to figure out why my files created with 744 permissions regadless of force create mode 666 or 777... Problem was in this paramater turned ON, and I can't remember why ...

I discovered the problem. I had to give 'other' execute permission on all folders from the root to the shared directory. I.e the share was located at /media/pau/data/share, I had to give 'other' execute permisson on /media, /media/paul, /media/paul/data

That's the result I receive from my Mac as well to that command, smbclient -L 192.168.1.111 (my Mac's IP). If you want to access your shared music from your Mac to use or play back on Lubuntu, I would suggest using PCManFM, Lubuntu's File Manager, instead. From your File Manager (which you can access by clicking on the Folder icon on your taskbar, or in ...

In order for Ubuntu and Windows 7 to share files, they have to be configured to be part of the same Workgroup. Also, file sharing needs to be enabled in Ubuntu. Install the Sharing Service in Ubuntu Linux The sharing service or Samba as it is called in Ubuntu is not installed by default. The installation process of Samba varies in complexity depending on ...

I didn't ask about Window 7 or 10. I have found there often are differences between 7 and 8. Anyhow, it was a massive PITA but I finally found some instructions that actually work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQN4lf2gGVs Note that those instructions do not require passwords, etc. Since this is a single-user system and I really just want to use it as a ...

It sounds like the file is actually being deleted and recreated. I doubt photoshop is doing any kind of chmod'ing in the background.

I'm operating on the assumption that your at least getting the login prompt. There needs to be both an Ubuntu user account and a samba account. Let's say your login in Ubuntu is jamesc You would run  smbpasswd -a jamesc And then go through the prompts to setup the user Edit: okay, your not getting login prompt and your not sure how to provide ...

Samba adds your folder to active directory, which is what Microsoft uses for network drives. Unfortunately, there is no good way to tell you how to configure the .conf or how to set it up, so I will point you to some useful resources. Basically, you install Samba, and monkey around with the smb.conf until you get it working. A word of advice: back up your ...

You can declare the share as public. Edit the /etc/samba/smb.conf file, and use this template: [public] path = /usr/somewhere/else/public public = yes only guest = yes writable = yes printable = no Beware, disable authentication at your own risk. This is accessible by anyone. Use the writable flag to secure it to read only.

If you configured samba with command prompt (Terminal), you've need to set guest ok = yes Example: [Shared Folder] comment = My Folder path = /files/my folder browseable = yes read only = no guest ok = yes Test out "guest ok = yes"!

Just write this instead in the terminal: smbpasswd -a penguin And the user you've adding needs to be added in the Ubuntu system, like a new user
