I have a fresh install of Fedora I'm trying to set up Samba for Windows machines' access.
I find that there are neither of these are available for Fedora Or are there some alternatives? I'm wanting to share several folders on the Fedora to be accessed by Windows machines. I'm able to ping in both directions Fedora and Windows I'm getting a lot of exit-code errors and have no clue how to decipher those, even in my logs.Samba is an open source and most popular widely used program that enables end users to access Linux shared directory from any windows machine on the same network.
Using windows smbclient GUI or file explorer, end users can connect to Samba server from any windows workstations to access shared files and printers. We are using RHEL 6. First, check whether SELinux is currently enabled or disabled with following command. Ignore this step, if SELinux is already disabled. Here, we will need to reboot the system to re-lable entire file system in the boot process. This reboot process can take some time, depends on the volume of files.
Once the system comes to login prompt, login with root user and start installing Samba package.
We use YUM package manager tool to install Samba packages. Once samba installed successfully, now time to configure it using tdbsam password backend. And check for the following lines in the Standalone Server Options section.
This line enables users to login into Samba server. Now, we will create Samba share directory for sharing files for all users.Samba Share for Beginners
Run the following commands. Now add newly created user tecmint to Samba user database and set password for him. This way you can create as many as users you want, just replace the username tecmint with the desired username. Verify Samba share directory within Linux system using smbclient package with -L option. It will display list of available samba share directories on the host tecmint.
Try to login into Samba share directory under Linux system using username as tecmint with password. Refer screenshot below. You will see similar to below. TecMint is the fastest growing and most trusted community site for any kind of Linux Articles, Guides and Books on the web.
I am not willing to play with Terminal as of now.
Thanks for suggestions. I'm not aware of one, it's not considered good practice to have a GUI on a server, so the very existence of such a tool suggests that it is not a good one like FreeNAS.
Fedora 26: Install Samba for SMB server
It's difficult to have a truly good product in a bad idea category. That said, the obvious choice is the included one. On CentOS the installation is You can also use tools like Salt and Ansible. Of course, these are not GUIs either. But nor are they terminals. Do you know easy GUI to manage? I don't think you could pay me to use Webmin. I'm even leery of using Cockpit and it's built by Red Hat.
Used internally only it should be fine. Don't get me wrong, but the thing really is… if can't understand an smb. I recommend Webmin as well. It makes administration of Linux a lot simpler and faster for typical administrative tasks. Especially if you aren't efficient with bash, and don't have time to spend hours on google before every task you want to perform, that you don't remember the commands for. It's still faster and more efficient to Putty in using SSH and do things that way.
But I understand that may not be for everyone, especially those who are specifically looking for GUI options. I don't care what others say about it, I just know that it works, and works well, makes things tons easier, and it has never messed anything up. Even when I install it on ancient versions of Linux, it still performs well.
The worst thing I have come across when installing Webmin, is I had to disable https once Learn the terminal. Webmin isn't always going to be an option and neither will a GUI.
chmod 777 /home/share
This reminds me of scottalanmiller 's vim vs. I'm the captain of that vessel Are we cavemen, dragging our knuckles toward the black screen with archaic green letters to type cryptic text commands when GUIs have existed for a couple of decades now? I thought we lived in the future. GUI was an experiment in the s and it went poorly. Microsoft has made it clear that even in the Windows world, GUI is legacy.
Funny how that works, eh? Because the bottom line is not how you think I should do it, but how I actually accomplish daily, weekly, monthly tasks without CLI. Different strokes for different mafackas. In the immortal words of Peter Lorre, "you do it your way, and I'll do it mine". To me its a matter of resource management but I'm not over here trying to change your mind either.Direct comments and corrections to the websites team.
