As you can see it only gives you one pretty basic share in this case
Now get samba running, do "rcsmb restart". Later on you would check it
in Yast to make sure it runs in runlevel 3 and/or 5.
Now fire up webmin ((localhost:10000) - you DO have webmin installed,
Um, never heard of it. I have it now.
It isn't included in smart - that came up with something called webpin.
Oh, and it is https://localhost:10000/ - need the SSL portion. I decided to trust myself and accepted my certificate. :)
See enclosed screenshot and at:
goto Samba. Now convert all users (or just your account to smb users) - and set your samba password.
Not quite sure where that part is - i messed around with webmin and haven't had success yet.
Alternatively, do #/usr/bin/smbpasswd your-user-name", this will also
create a smb user/passwd in /etc/samba/smbpasswd etc.
I think I did that...
xwing:/home/kai # /usr/bin/smbpasswd kai
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
Then goto konquerer and type
Timeout on server
This should give you a list of shares, in this case just the "grafik"
share. When this runs, you may hereafter start playing with smb.conf,
remember to restart smb after each modif. Do "rcsmb restart"
This is way too complicated. I'm actually very annoyed - not that I have an excuse for a free OS - that I can't just right-click a folder in Konqueror and have this "just work."
- sorry to hear about all your problems with this. It should be quite straight forward, really. The something rotten in the state of Den..., however.
You did modif the smb.conf file I sent you to reflect your directory structure in order to share out a directory of your choice?
Sorry for the "smbpasswd" thing, it should be with the -a option.
Apart from that, I do think that there should be a samba-user defined. As stated I use webmin for that, I fire up webmin and do:
"Samba Windows File Sharing", "Section Samba Users/Convert Unix users to Samba users", "Don't convert or remove these users:-999, 1001-" - as my userID is 1000 (I was the first user on this machine). This gives me myself as a SMB user. I may now return to the share list and do
"Edit Samba users and passwords" in which I click on my username and hence give myself a new (SMB...) password. Done.
The first thing I see, is that the "smb://kai@xxxxxxxxxxxxx" doesn't give you a server at all. This (to me) indicates that SMB isn't running at all...
When I do a "#netstat -apn | grep -i listen", I get:
"tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:139 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 6050/smbd"
- which to me indicates that SMB indeed is alive and ready.
To get SMB started I did (I'm on SuSE10.3):
"#rcsmb restart", which gives me:
dell-103:/home/vk # rcsmb restart
Shutting down Samba SMB daemon done
Starting Samba SMB daemon done
I hope this is of help to you :-)
I also take the liberty to call for others in the list/thread to keep at it, as I (and Kai most likely :-)) would really like to know what could keep this seemingly trivial SMB thing to actually just run. Thanks in advance!
