I've got Linux and samba installed in two PC's of our lan. The rest of
the computers have Windows2000 installed.
The PC's with Windows2000 can browse my Linux shares perfectly with Windows
Explorer, and I can print from Linux to a Windows client printer.
I can connect with 'smbclient' to a windows client and see its content, and
also to each of the other linux computer and see the shares of both of them
from each other.
All this makes me quite happy :->
My problems are about mounting and browsing the net from the Linux PC's:
1) Between both Linux computer, I am using also samba to communicate between
these to computers. Is this the better way?
2) I'm using konqueror to browse and in the address bar I write
lan://IP-of-the-others-PC but the connection fails. Is this correct or I
always need to mount the destination filesystems before I can see them in a
3) I've also tried to use mount in this way:
mount -t smbfs //HP-Javier/publDoc /mnt/publdoc
and give the samba password. It mounts right but when I try to add (write -
when browsing with konqueror) a file to the remote linux PC the access is
denied. I'm sure that the user has write access allowed to hits folder. Why
4) I've also mounted, in the same way, a whole NTFS filesystem of a remote
windows2000 PC, and I can browse it right in konqueror, but I haven't got
write access. And write access is allowed to my user in the windows 2000 PC.
Is the same question that the previous one, but perhaps the solution is
different. It sounds very strange to me, because I can modify a file ( a text
file) but I can delete nor add new files. It seems like a samba error. Isn't
5) There are any restrictions to mount and access lan's
filesystems, through samba, based on the owner of the folders?
6) And last. A question and a comment: I have used 'smbumount' to unmount a
big remote NTFS, and the systems block sometimes. Besides this, my computer
browse it very slowly and sometimes halts the computer. Is there any advice,
or known problems, about big filesystems.
Thank you for your help in any of the questions, and Happy New Year.
