    Of course, I see it now: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...-sharing-Issue quite a big job.

    At first I had this in mind: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...r-Samba-Shares

    You are right! I have been here for quite a long time and am quite appreciative of this Forum. I am not a real techie, so, whenever I got issues with my openSUSE installation I posted here and got help. Thanks to all of you dedicated folks who keep this good job going and helping a lot of Linux user enthusiasts.
    Keep it up folks!!!

    P. S. Since the problem i am encountering with my Lan & samba now, is similar to that in my previous thread (the 1st thread you refereed to above) I am going to use that thread to continue with the issue I still have. Please watch for my reply regarding the result of your suggestions in post #8 above.
    Thanks!

    Default Samba share of KNetAttach virtual folder / Re: Configure Samba for a Workgroup in the local LAN

    A Samba share of KNetAttach (KDE) virtual folder:

    Context:
    Using KNetAttacht (Network Folder Wizard in KDE), it is possible to integrate a remote network folder within the KDE desktop – securely over an insecure public Internet connection via a SSH tunnel; eg https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/kde-...knetattach.pdf
    The SSH tunnelled files, can then be viewed as a virtual folder, for example, with Dolphin under Network. In this form they take a distinct and separate entry, from say the local Samba Shares.

    My question:
    It is possible to mount such a virtual folder as created by KNetAttacht, as a Samba share, such that the contained files can then be shared over the local LAN, like other Samba shares located on the local physical disk ? eg. to local Windows machines.
    I have searched on this topic, but am unable to find anything. Not being very knowledgeable on such topics, I do not know if such a Samba mount of a virtual folder is even possible or for example, how would I construct a path statement in the smb.conf file ?.

    Motivation:
    In the early days of Windows 7, it was possible to SSH tunnel over the Internet to a Linux SSH server, to mount a Samba file share in a windows file manager – It appears nowdays, Microsoft now make this very difficult – no longer practical to simply do – hence my interest in constructing a SSH tunnel from a remote linux pc to a local linux pc and then locally onwards sharing using Samba.

    Thank-you for your interest and any suggestions and welcomed assistance,

    Hi [and welcome to the forums].

    This is an interesting issue. To attach the question at the end of a long and old thread gives the post low visibility. We can't detach your question and make it into a new thread with high visibility. So I recommend that you start a new thread and ask the same question there. I would be keen to see what the options are (from the more knowledgeable folk).

    Wink AW: Configure Samba for a Workgroup in the local LAN

    Code:
    rpm - qa | grep samba
    should be
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep samba
    without the space " " between the single hyphen/single dash/minus "-" and the aberrations for the function/options --query and --all.
    [If it is not there by intent
    to filter those who do not know the difference between both lines above/who like to do copy and paste..
    from using samba at all...]

    And a minor one: Why is searching done by a terminal command and (in case) installing by the Yast Software Management-module? Why not both by the Yast module or both by terminal commands?

    Typo, thanks. It's fixed.

    Because the terminal command is a quick way to see if it's installed. And if the user has not got it installed for some strange reason, then the more sophisticated Yast interface should be used by new users who aren't up to speed with Linux.

    There is mistake in https://forums.opensuse.org/content....-Lan-Workgroup regarding
    Code:
    [WilliamsShare]
    . There should this:
    Code:
    [WilliamsShare]
            path = /path_to/shared_directory

    Angry Re: Configure Samba for a Workgroup in the local LAN

    Hello,
    after update to openSUSE 42.3 (from 42.2) my Windows users can not login/used secured samba shares (guest/anonymous access works). I followed instruction in https://forums.opensuse.org/content....-Lan-Workgroup but on windows it fails:

    Code:
    C:\>net use W: \\level2\WilliamsShare /user:william
    Enter the password for 'william' to connect to 'level2':
    System error 86 has occurred.
    
    The specified network password is not correct.
    But when I tried it on openSUSE it works:

    Code:
    smbclient //level2/WilliamsShare -U william
    Enter SPS\william's password:
    Domain=[LEVEL2] OS=[] Server=[]
    smb: \> ls
      .                                   D        0  Sat Aug 19 10:38:47 2017

    Default Howto configure SAMBA client (OpenLeap 42.3/SLES12SP3) to authenticate/join via TLS to AD

    I'm searching desperately for any hints, howto join a OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 (or SLES 12 SP3) Server to a AD Domain, which requires TLS (located in a DMZ)
    Searches via Google did not really help and for sure, there is
    some adaption of ldap.conf required.
    Any help would be really appreciated ....
    Many thanks
    Klaus
