So you're trying to browse to a properly configured Samba share but you get this error:
Unable to mount location
Failed to retrieve share list from server: Connection timed out
If your config is right, it can be due to a protocol miss-match where your client has not enabled SMB3 but by default the other side (server) has enabled it.
You can test this out to see with the smbclient tool........
This is useful for security purposes especially on a server which may have a public IP assigned to it but has a second NIC for the LAN.
Here is how you edit smb.conf:
interfaces = 192.168.1.50
bind interfaces only = yes
As you can see above it will only listen on 192.168.1.50 and remind to keep the "bind interfaces only"option.........
It has been a big pain for a long-time to install Windows from a Linux environment. I used to run a windows install server and it never worked right for some reason (the install would fail on most servers).
Before getting start be sure to setup your samba share so once you boot into WinPE you can mount the install for whatever Windows you want
path = /tftpboot/images/winstall
guest ok = yes........
yum -y install samba
mkdir syslinux;cd syslinux;unzip syslinux-6.03.zip
mkdir -p /tftpboot/libs/
cp bios/com32/modules/linux.c32 /tftpboot/libs/
cp bios/com32/libutil/libutil.c32 /tftpboot/libs/
cp bios/com32/lib/libcom32.c32 /tftpboot/libs/

By default Samba SMB/NMB listen on ANY and ALLIPs on your system by binding to 0.0.0.0. Obviously this is a huge security risk if you have a public facing server with both internal and external access. Usually when a system administrator sets up a samba server their intention is just to share with a LAN.
To do this you need to the following options under the [global] section in smb.conf
bind interfaces only = yes
interfaces = 192........
When using the .sh script the rendering doesn't work after an upgrade of related packages to kdenlive.
kdenlive (kdenlive:amd64 (4:17.04.1+git201705191233~ubuntu16.04.1)) with affine or composite transitions was fine but is now broken during the time of transition it is just a white screen.
The previous version was fine:
But now I can't find it or install it:........

At first I thought it's just not possible but there is actually an option that can be enabled to make symlinks work with Samba.
Then I put this under the [global] section
Note: It's "wide links" and not "wide symlinks" (some other sites have incorrect info which was a frustrating waste of time :))
Add this to your smb.conf
follow symlinks = yes
wide links = yes

This happened while updating Linux Mint/Debian/Ubuntu on a remote SMB/Samba share.
After waiting for updates to complete things will work normally but it really is strange that the service actually stops working or is disabled for so long during the update. It is likely the update process stops the serivce and only restarts after the update is complete.........
I still cannot understand how this would not be enabled by default and I struggled to find the reason why with manually installing samba etc.. wondering why the option for sharing was not in the menu.
On Linux Mint "MATE" the package is called "caja-share" and on Cinnamon it is called "nemo-share" so edit the below command as necessary:
*Also note that the "samba" package is necessary as it is not inst........
You have dual NICs and you disable NIC1 which uses 192.168.1.1 as its gateway. With NIC2 you enable it/connect it to another network which also has the gateway 192.168.1.1
Everything will work fine at this point.
When switching back to NIC1 even with NIC2 disabled and even unplugged, the OS basically can't pick up the new/updated ARP entry of the old device for 192.168.1.1 and perhaps thinks it is a security risk or spoof of some sorts and blocks i........
But note that it is just simple file sharing if you need directory mask, create mask etc... you still need to edit the smb.conf file to create your share.
Here is an example file:
Add the following to fstab where 192.168.1.125/Media is the samba share and where /home/homeuser/Downloads is where you want to mount.
Change user and pass to what is needed (if no pass is required it still works fine with the below).
//192.168.1.125/Media /home/homeuser/Downloads cifs user=guest,pass=bla 0 0
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.1.125/Media,
Say you have a bunch of files like this:
What if you want to mass rename them?
the rename tool can work just like sed
For Debian based distros:
Note "file" is what we search for and "newname" is what we replace it with, so substitute according to your requirements.
rename s/file/newname/ name-file-*.jpg
This is different than Centos 5, you have two services btu they are called "smb" and "nmb".
You need to enable and start "nmb" in order for your samba server to be listed.
chkconfig nmb on; chkconfig smb on
service nmb start;service smb start........

Global parameter guest account found in service section!
This is annoying but the solution is simple:
The line "guest account = " is in the section for a share (in /etc/samba/smb.conf), but it should be under globals. Move it under [global] and then everything should be fine.........
I'll start by showing some problems in the logs:

User nobody in passdb, but getpwnam() fails!
I never found the solution to this in the web, as usual so Ithought I'd post the fix. In plain English smbd is telling us that the user "nobody" does not exist in /etc/passwd.
You can simply add this to your /etc/passwd file like so:

There is a nice mode that Samba supports which you can add to smb.conf
This way users can create and write files/directories without deleting (except I believe dirs can be deleted but only if there are no files inside).

That happens when trying to use smbclient to connect to a share. The weird thing is that I can authnenticate just fine from Windows XP.
It is partially my mistake, I forgot this share does have a password. I've tried authenticating with the correct user and also with "Guest" because this works in Windows. In Linux I ........
This will give you the basic info needed to browse and connect to Samba shares from the command line. From the GUI of Gnome or KDE etc, it is pretty standard and straight forward. However, I've found very little guides on how to do it from the command line and if you're like me, a nerd who prefers command line for its simplicity and for remote use, this is the way to go.
First get a list of all the Samba/SMB shares on the target.
