Thread: Windows XP box does not see/access Linux shares

  1. #1

    Default Windows XP box does not see/access Linux shares

    Hello all.
    I sorted through various threads for a couple of weeks now and have had good luck up to now to get my Samba working. But am now stuck and confused trying to apply the many other answers to my situation. I thank those who would once again answer a question about Samba / Linux / Windows XP connections. The collective patience of the Linux community is something to behold.

    I have 2 PC's. Mine is the opensuse 11.1, setup Samba and I want to connect my wife's Windows XP box to see my shares on that Linux box.

    I'm connected to a Comcast modem with a simple 4port Linksys hub (no router) to network the ethernet cables together.
    Both PC's surf the 'net with no problems.

    I followed Samba and Suse: HowTo Set up an openSUSE-Windows Home Office LAN/Network. Versions 10, 11 I believe to the letter and in troubleshooting the problem have had the firewall disabled, with ports open as suggested in various places TCP: 135,139,445 and UDP: 137,138, broadcasting enabled per swerdna, etc.

    I have setup shares and on the Linux box I can go
    My Computer
    Network Folders
    SMB Shares
    JeepNet
    Popeye and I CAN see and access the shared stuff there myself with my Username/Password (I think I want that, seems like at least some security even tho it's me.)

    BUT the Windows XP box does not see any of the shares when I try to map a network drive.

    The XP box "Computer Name" is Olive_Oil and the workgroup is set to JEEPNET as it seems to force all CAPS.
    I have made a user of that box also a user on the Linux box.
    Both the Linux user and the Windows user are defined in the Linux box and are members of the same "groups".

    But it seems like I must have to somewhere/somehow tell Popeye that Olive_Oil has permission to the shares.
    I see this in the Windows box.
    My Network Places
    Entire Network
    Microsoft Windows Network
    JEEPNET
    But no shares under the Workgroup.

    If someone would be so kind, I think I am very close to get it working.
    Ultimately I need to be able to go the other way, printing to the Windows XP printer from the Linux box. But one step at a time.

    I think first it helps if you can see my smb.conf file so here is that.
    If I have ignorantly posted info that makes me vulnerable someone please advise that too.
    Just in case I now enable Firewall again. ;-)
    Thanks very much!

    It looks OK to me -- no need to be abnormally concerned.

    I suggest that you leave the Suse firewall off until you can see the shares from Windows -- that's to cut down the number of possibilities for confusion.

    If you have not altered the windows firewall in any way from the defaults then you can leave it on (it allows Samba by default). If you have any third party firewall on windows you should turn it off to see whether it's having an effect.

    Otherwise, provided you have the same workgroup name on windows and Linux (and you say so -- and BTW the upper/lower case in workgroup name doesn't matter):
    then restart Suse then wait till it settles
    then restart windows then wait till it settles
    then restart Suse then wait till it settles

    That makes them conduct an election for the Browse Master

    Then how is it?

    Oh and an afterthought: run these commands in a terminal window and make sure they both return "running":
    • sudo /etc/init.d/smb status
    • sudo /etc/init.d/nmb status

    Do that before the stuff in my first post.

    SomeSuSEUser;

    Did you create Samba users with smbpasswd?

    In a terminal window enter:
    Code:
    su
    smbpasswd -a <username>
    username must be a valid Linux user. For example:

    smbpasswd -a JeepNut

    Can you verify that both nmbd and smbd are started with:
    Code:
    ps -A | grep [n,s]mb
    There should be a process number for both nmbd and smbd.


    While you're testing turn the firewalls off on both Windows and Linux so you
    can isolate the problem (restore firewalls when you're done testing).

    Thanks for the assist folks:

    For PV
    Popeye:/etc/samba # ps -A | grep [n,s]mb
    3825 ? 00:00:00 smbd
    3826 ? 00:00:00 smbd
    7019 ? 00:00:00 nmbd
    And confirmed users are added with passwords per your note and the tutorial. Samba and Suse: HowTo Set up an openSUSE-Windows Home Office LAN/Network. Versions 10, 11

    For swerdna
    Popeye:/etc/samba # /etc/init.d/smb status
    Checking for Samba SMB daemon running
    Checking for Samba NMB daemon running

    Therefore deleted all lines as noted in smb.conf.
    Dropped the firewalls on both Linux and Windows.
    Restarted in the sequence given with about 10-15 minutes settle time after restarting each box.

    No change.
    In Windows I see:
    My Network Places
    __Entire Network
    ____Microsoft Terminal Services
    ____Microsoft Windows Network
    ______Jeepnet
    ________Olive_oil
    __________Printers and Faxes
    __________Scheduled Tasks
    ____Web Client Network

    But no Popeye.

    Default Re: Windows XP box does not see/access Linux shares

    Can you ping the IP of the windows box from jeepnet and vice versa?
    Can you use the windows network neighborhood and put this address in the address bar and see the shares: \\IP_of_jeepnet

    SomeSuSEUser;

    In addition to this; check the contents of:
    /var/lib/samba/browse.dat
    Do you see Popeye and Olive_Oil as well as JeepNet? It might help to post the
    contents.

    Are both machines on the same subnet? i.e. Do they both have IP's in an
    x.y.z.* range with the same mask? Using just a hub, I would expect something
    like 192.168.0.x on both machines with only the last digit varying and a mask
    of 255.255.255.0

    swerdna:
    Now we're into somewhat unfamiliar stuff and I know just enough to make me dangerous.
    I understand these topics only superficially. I learned to use a computer from a guy who taught me using DOS 3.3 on a Kaypro. ('80s) But on Linux it's reverse. I'm a GUI baby and don't know commandline much. But I'm starting to learn...it took some reading and I don't know for sure what I'm doing but I managed this output where Popeye is the Linux box (I'm in terminal as root)

    Popeye:~ # ifconfig
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:15:F2:39:78:46
    inet addr:71.57.33.24 Bcast:255.255.255.255 Mask:255.255.254.0

    RX bytes:654138 (638.8 Kb) TX bytes:654138 (638.8 Kb)

    and this is the ping test to Olive_Oil (Windows box) ip:

    Popeye:~ # ping -c 6 -v 98.220.148.223
    PING 98.220.148.223 (98.220.148.223) 56(84) bytes of data.

    Now I understand from reading that in Windows XP there isn't any longer any Network Neighborhood. It's done with the tree I previously posted "My Network Places" so no, Olive_Oil isn't seeing the shares there.

    On the OTHER side, at the keyboard of Olive_Oil I get this output:

    So what I can figure this all means is that I have the simple definition of the problem correct.
    Popeye and Olive_Oil really do see each other, but the shares on Popeye are not seen by Olive_Oil yet.

    So far so good.
    Now to P.V.'s questions:

    It's obvious at this point then that the masks aren't the same and the IP's aren't what was expected. I don't know why, or how to force them to match, or if I should do that actually.
    I do appreciate any further help on that topic.

    /var/lib/samba/browse.dat shows:
    "JEEPNET" c0001000 "POPEYE" "JEEPNET"
    "POPEYE" 40849a03 "Eat 'yer Spinach!" "JEEPNET"

    I take it from your reply that may indicate a problem since there is no reference to Olive_Oil.

    Thanks to you both for your kind review of these results!

    SomeSuSEUser;

    The two machines are on different subnets(98.220.14x. and 71.57.3y. ), and
    there lies your problem. The easiest solution is to buy a router (available
    for around $40(US). The router will assign IP's in the same subnet and
    connect both machines to the Internet and generally include a built in
    switch. Alternatively you could add an addition Ethernet card to Popeye and
    use IP Masquerading to make your Suse machine act as the router. See:
    http://opensuse.swerdna.org/suseics.html
    (This last could also be done from Windows, using "Internet sharing".)

    Of course you could set static IP's for sharing, and then change the
    configuration to dhcp for Internet use, but this seems a whole lot more
    trouble than it's worth.

    One additional alternative, you could try adding the following
    to /etc/samba/smb.conf:
    Code:
    wins support = yes
    and then configure Olive_Oil to use Popeye as a wins server. This will break
    if Popeye's IP changes.
