Re: Cannot Access Fedora Shares

Hi Glenn,

I have the new smb.conf, and have tested.
result:
"The network path was not found".

I assume the host name is the name of the Fedora box (Trout).

Re: Cannot Access Fedora Shares

The hostname is what you see when you type at the command prompt
Code:
[glenn@leonardo ~>$ hostname
leonardo
And probably what's shown at your command prompt.

Is the firewall turned off? If it is on you can try turning it off again or you can open System > Administration > Firewall and make sure Samba and Samba Client are checked as allowed.

Both Samba and Samba Client are checked. I also just tried with firewall disabled, still nothing.

Thanks for all this effort Glenn,

Brian

Re: Cannot Access Fedora Shares

You're welcome. We must be missing something obvious but I have to call it a night. It's getting late and these ageing eyes are getting tired.

Some leisure reading for you. http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/. I'll expect a full report on my desk in the morning

Thanks, I'll give that a read. I hope to have some progress to report.

Thanks again,

HI. Problem solved!

I read a bunch more about Samba which was good, but didn't feel like much applied to the problem or was new to what we tried. So I went back to an earlier suggestion that you made, regarding SELinux. I mentioned that I new very little about it, but it occurred to me that if you brought it up, it must be important.
So I took the time to learn something about SELinux, and once I figured I got the basic idea, I started looking and sure enough, there are options to allow/block Samba from read/write to several different directory options.

Getting stuck on a problem is very frustrating, but it's a good way to learn. Thanks a bunch Glenn for leading me through the process and letting me know what questions needed to be asked. I would likely be stuck for weeks had you not helped me out.

Thanks again for the help.
Cheers,

Brian

Could you run the command:

getfacl /temp/ and post the results of the ACL list.

Re: Cannot Access Fedora Shares

Guys, thanks a lot for this discussion!

I was stuck with the same problem of sharing a folder in Fedora 15 for couple of weeks. Couple clicks in SELinux GUI administration tool fixed it all!!

Now I feel some anger toward Fedora developers (even though they did an awesome job) that they did not let SELinux to allow Samba to share folders by default.

There's a lot of security functions by default.

Re: Cannot Access Fedora Shares

All you need to do is to look in your /etc/samba/smb.conf file and it tells you all you need to do to get samba and selinux set up to work properly.

It gives the commands. You just need to copy/paste

It's just that the context is set differently depending upon how you wish to share things with samba, that it's impossible for them to get things set up to work right out of the box.

Re: Cannot Access Fedora Shares

yep But it still can be confusing after reading through the smb.conf comments, too. Selinux can be confusing until you really dig into it and learn how things work, which most people don't or won't do.

At least after reading through the smb.conf file, you should figure out more directed question to ask if you still need help, and you should get someone that knows the answers.

A directed question is much easier to answer than a "samba won't work with selinux"
