[SOLVED] Fail using Samba

Hi!

I have a WD TV Live in the living room connected to the TV and I have my PC in another room. In this PC I have all my films and series.
I'd like to acces from the WD TV Live to my PC films and reproduce them from the WD.
The solution to this is sharing folders (either Samba or NFS)
I choose Samba because I think there's more info around the web.
So, I installed and configured (I think correctly) the /etc/samba/smb.conf file:

[global]
netbios name = Samba24
server string = Samba file and print server
workgroup = WORK_GROUP
security = user
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
hosts allow = 127. 192.168.0.
interfaces = 127.0.0.1/8 192.168.0.0/24

path = /home/emilio/Descargas/
valid users = emilio

[HDD]
comment = HDD
read only = no

path = /media/HDD/
valid users = emilio

I just need to share /home/emilio/Descargas/ and /media/HDD/ I don't need to share the whole /home# Unix_name = SMB_Name1 SMB_Name2 ...

I also edited the /etc/samba/smbusers file:

root = administrator
nobody = guest smbguest pcguest
emilio = "emilio"

And I started samba:

sudo rc.d start samba
:: Starting Samba Server                                                                                                [DONE] 

But from the WD my PC doesn't appear. I'm also sure it's not a WD's problem because I can see other computers.
Maybe something is not correctly configured? The ips or something like that? The workgroup is correct
Would it be easier to use NFS? Could someone explain me how to do it?

Here I leave the ifconfig output (part of it) if it's usefull:

inet 192.168.1.35  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 192.168.1.255

If something more is needed please ask me for it

Thanks to everybody

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

1st, you have possibly way too much in your [global] section.  Most of that likely isn't needed, and at best it just clutters things up, at worst it can cause issues.  For example that windbind stuff...Are you integrating with AD ?  If not it's completely uneeded.  Also the "name resolve order" line is telling Samba to use WINS first.  Do you have a WINS server ?
Your best bet is to start with a very basic smb.conf and add to it.  The wiki has a decent overview of getting started.  I'd use that as a base, and mod as needed.

2nd, is basic name resolution working ?  Can you ping your Samba machine by name from the client ?  If not you'll have problems even if Samba is set up correctly.

In short, start with the basics and a simple config, then add to it.

I've followed your advice and modified the basic smb.conf.default
This is now my smb.comf file:

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba, 
# read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection. This may be obtained from:
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf
#
# Many working examples of smb.conf files can be found in the 
# Samba-Guide which is generated daily and can be downloaded from: 
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) 
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable

Now, about your 2nd point. I want to acces to the Samba machine from a WD TV Live where the only way to access to the Samba machine is by the machine. Maybe, it would be useful to try to acces this Samba machine from another PC? How could I do this?


I've tried to acces from the WD TV Live and my Samba machine is found, but when I try to access it, I'm asked for an user and a password.
I've created the emilio user by:

sudo useradd -s emilio

and added a password:

sudo smbpasswd -a emilio

but when I try to acces with this user and password it says they're incorrect.
This is my smbusers file:

# Unix_name = SMB_Name1 SMB_Name2 ...
root = administrator
anonymous = guest smbguest pcguest
emilio = emilio

My linux user is emilio and it has a password, do I have to do something else?

Thanks
Regards

I'm not a great Samba guy; I run it from OS X using SMBUp,  but I do notice this in your smb.conf:

hosts allow = 127. 192.168.0.

while you seem to report your ip address as

192.168.1.35

and while I may be off the mark, it looks like you're not allowing your newtork to connect. Change the 0 to a 1 maybe? [Edit] Oh, I see you did that in your updated smb.conf; sorry.

[Edit]
I also have a WD Live. When it asks for my username and password, it's not asking for a samba username and password, it's asking for  the name and password that I use to login to my computer. It sees (and plays) the stuff I've shared from that computer. Again, though, this is OS X doing the sharing.

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

The fact you're connecting now is good, one step closer.  Check the permissions on the directory you're trying to connect to, and make sure the emilio user has access.

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

I am not clear on one thing.  Are you saying that you cannot see the PC , or that you cannot log into it? 

If you cannot see it, you may want to look into Avahi (it is in the wiki).  It allows systems to autodiscover each other using either Apple's Bonjour, or Microsoft's whetever-it-is-they-call-it-today.

Otherwise, just tell tell the WD to go to the IP address of the server.

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

I have the same user with the same password both in the system and in samba (emilio)
These are the permisions of:
drwxr-xr-x 119 emilio users  28672 nov 17 17:51 Descargas
drwxrwxrwx 1 root   root  4096 nov 16 18:38 HDD
From the WD I can find my PC and when I try to connect to it I'm asked for an user and a password. I've tried with my Linux user, my samba user, root user, guest with no password, anonymous with no password... But I always get the same error, user or password are not correct.
Above these lines there are my smb.conf file and my smbusers file. I think everything is correct in these files (not sure if smbusers is completely right) but I still can not authenticate.

Thanks to everyone for reading and answering

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

Which version of Samba are you running? 3.4.0 and higher don't use smbpasswd by default:

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

I should have skipped reading that when I read everything about samba on the wiki
I'm running samba 3.6.9-1 so smbpasswd is not used with this version.
Wiki says:

To stick to the 'smbpasswd' backend try changing this in /etc/samba/smb.conf:

passdb backend = smbpasswd

or convert the smbpasswd entries using:

sudo pdbedit -i smbpasswd -e tdbsam

Which one is recommended to do? I've already created an user (emilio) and a password for it (ussing smbpasswd). I
I've added

passdb backend = smbpasswd

to my smb.conf and tried to access from the WD to the shared folders. I'm asked again for the user and password. I put emilio and the password but still the same.
Any idea?

[EDIT] In my smb.conf I've found the following text:

# Backend to store user information in. New installations should 
# use either tdbsam or ldapsam. smbpasswd is available for backwards 
# compatibility. tdbsam requires no further configuration.
;   passdb backend = tdbsam

Shouls this line be uncommented?
Maybe I should change the security method (user, share...)

After trying to execute

sudo pdbedit -i smbpasswd -e tdbsam

I get this output

Importing account for emilio...ok

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

Maybe you should fix your smb.config file smile

# If you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this
   load printers = yno

That should be a yes, or no.

That should be a yes, or no.

I just figured it out later. I have now corrected the smb.conf and it looks like this:

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example

# For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba, 
# read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection. This may be obtained from:
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf
#
# Many working examples of smb.conf files can be found in the 
# Samba-Guide which is generated daily and can be downloaded from: 
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) 
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.

#======================= Global Settings =====================================
[global]

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: MIDEARTH
   workgroup = WORK_GROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
   server string = Samba Server

# Security mode. Defines in which mode Samba will operate. Possible 
# values are share, user, server, domain and ads. Most people will want 
# user level security. See the Samba-HOWTO-Collection for details.
   security = user

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict

Now, GOOD NEWS! I've managed to connect with the samba machine. First I tried using emilio and it's password but I get the same error "User or password are not correct" After that I tried with guest and no password and... VOILA! I'm in. For me that's ok. Theres just one more error. When I get in as a guest, the WD says there are not shared files on current folder. Any idea?

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

Furthermore, when I try to share a folder from dolphin I get this output:

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

Followed your advice, and modified my smb.conf like this

workgroup = WORK_GROUP
   server string = Samba Server
   security = share
   hosts allow = 192.168.1.  127.
   load printers = yes
   log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
   max log size = 50
#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
[homes]
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = yes
   writable = yes
        public = yes

[Datos]
   path = /home/emilio/Descargas
   public = yes
#   only guest = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no

[HDD]
        path = /media/HDD
        public = yes
#       only guest = yes
        writable = yes
        printable = no

When I try to access I'm asked for user and password. I use guest with no password and I'm in, but the same problem, "no multimedia files on current folder"

Windows work group? The WD has WORK_GROUP as work group, and WDAcapulco as the machine name (I've just seen that on the WD options)
About the host allow, I'm nearly sure that it's correct, all my ip's are 192.168.1.xx where xx depends on the connections (I use DHCP)

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

If I try to share the folder "Descargas" from thunar I get this error:
40651624.jpg
It's not a package error because I have thunar-shares-plugin 0.2.0-7 installed

I've found this

For non (X)ubuntu users the Samba setup is:
Create a group (must be done as root)

  export USERSHARES_DIR="/var/lib/samba/usershares"
  export USERSHARES_GROUP="sambashare"
  mkdir -p ${USERSHARES_DIR}
  groupadd ${USERSHARES_GROUP}
  chown root:${USERSHARES_GROUP} ${USERSHARES_DIR}
  chmod 01770 ${USERSHARES_DIR}

Use the following /etc/samba/smb.conf (or something similar)

  [global]
  workgroup = WORKGROUP
  security = share
  usershare path = /var/lib/samba/usershares
  usershare max shares = 100
  usershare allow guests = yes
  usershare owner only = yes

Add the samba group to your user (replace your_username by your login)

  usermod -a -G ${USERSHARES_GROUP} your_username

Restart Samba daemons

  /etc/init.d/samba restart

Logout and login your user (your_username)

May be the solution?

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

New info!
I've tried to access to this shared folders from another PC (with Windows 7)connected to the same router.
I CAN access and without being asked for any user or password.
I can see 3 folders: Datos, hdd and homes:
If I try to access to hdd everything is ok. I can see all the files with no problem
If I try to access to Datos I get the following error:

Windoes can't obtain acces to \\192.168.1.35\Datos
You don't have permissions for obtaining access to \192.168.1.35\Datos.

These are the permissions for both folders:
drwxrwxrwx 119 emilio users  28672 nov 18 13:18 Datos
drwxrwxrwx 1 root   root  4096 nov 16 18:38 HDD

Any idea of what should I do? I think we're really close to solve the problem but I don't know how.

Instead, if I try to access from the samba machine, I open dolphin and I write in the direction bar smb://192.168.1.35/ and I'm asked for an user and a password, it doesn't matter what user I write (no password) that I'm in. If I try to access to HDD the same happens. But, if I try to acces Datos I'm asked for user and password again. No matter what I write (smb user + pass, system user + pass, root + pass, smb user no pass, system user no pass, root no pass) I can't access. Maybe something about permission?
Thanks to everybody. I feel really close to the solution

Thanks

Re: [SOLVED] Fail using Samba

Yes! Yes!
Now, I've tried from the WD and with user anonymous and no pass I can access and see all films from the HDD folder, I just need now to see the ones from Datos folder.
This now should be easy shouldn't it?
Any help please?
Thanks
