[Samba] Windows XP machine cannot be accessed
Subject: [Samba] Windows XP machine cannot be accessed

I have a small peer to peer network of 4 machines, WinME, Win2K Pro SP4, Win XP
Pro SP2 and Linux Mandrake 10.1 Samba 3.0.10.1. I am pretty new at Linux but
have been around computers for a very long time.

The Linux installation went smoothly, MDK and KDE3 utilities make it simple for
newbies to get things running, so Samba went together quite easily but I now
have a problem I have been struggling with for days.

All of the Windows machines have no problems accessing shares on each other and
Mandrake. The Mandrake machine accesses the WinME an Win2K machines readily,
but the WinXP machine is not visible on any utility I have tried. I can ping it
OK. I have disabled firewalls etc in case this was the problem but no change.

I manually edited fstab and inserted what seemed an appropriate entry for a
share on the XP machine. In Konqueror for instance an icon appeared for the
share but when clicked up in was empty.

I have almost convinced myself that it must be some kind of authentication
problem, probably something basic I have overlooked and so simple I cannot see
it. Can anybody give me some ideas please?
John

OK so Samba is working fine? yes? The windows machines can mount the samba
share off of the mandrake box? they get asked for a password and username
which you supply and then you can browse the shares from the windows
machines?

I don't have a linux desktop machine any more but I used to do this in fstab
(note that if the above is correct and samba works then this is an smbfs
problem, and appropriate to that list, not this one) :

#Samba filesystems, not auto mounted and any user.

//ukldnfs05/shared_area /mnt/smb/ukldnfs05/shared_area smbfs
noauto,users,credentials=/home/geoff/Crap/smbcred 0 0
//ukldninstall03/allsoftware$ /mnt/smb/ukldninstall03/allsoftware smbfs
noauto,users,credentials=/home/geoff/Crap/smbcred 0 0

then inside of /home/geoff/Crap/smbcred I had:

username=geoff
password=doggyp00
workgroup=dudenet

these things are best done manually on the command line first to see if all
is working well, from memory:

mount -t smbfs //server/windowsshare /path/to/mntdir -o username=geoff

If the above manual stuff works then it must be another problem.

Tell us what you see.

Try going to the Authentication tab on the WinXP's Local Area Connection
Properties dialog screen and disabling the IEEE 802.1x authentication - just
for giggles.

I do not get asked for a password. I still have some work on permisisons, but I
can copy files form Mandrake, but need to sort out write permissions before I
can write back. I use the same user name and passwword throughout and have set
it as the default user for LAN access.

If I use mount at the console in the format you suggest I get asked for my
password and the XP share mounts and can be accessed (also through Konqueror
etc.) When I attempt to write the equivalent into fstab, the folder appears but
is empty. No messages. It has not auto generated a credentials file for the XP
machine as it has for the other machines. Inserting user=john in fstab is OK
for the WinME machine, but XP must want more. I guess if it cannot see the
machine then it will not auto generate the needed access files.
Regards
John.

FYI

John,

If you wish to automount shares when you login, you can try pam_mount. It should
be a package on the mdk 10.1 CDs. You can set it to mount windows cifs and smb
shares to your mandrake box. It's possible because Linux supports pluggable auth
modules(PAM)

I used it along with winbind auth to mount all my windows shares from servers at
work to my Linux mandrake workstation (laptop) When ever I ssh'd in, the shares
mounted. It can be set to mount based on preferred authentication system (local
password file, winbind, nis, etc) and  protocol. ie. mount windows shares if you
login via ssh, or even if you login through the kde desktop (warning: kde
requires special files relocated when mounting home directories).

Having said that and seeing as how you are new, I believe Geoff's solution is a
much easier way to go. You may however wish to read up on pam_mount anyway.

For more info do a google on pam_mount

Chris
