Thread: Connecting to WinXP from Linux

    Connecting to WinXP from Linux

    Well, my bro has a winXP machine and i set one of his drives to share, but when I do a 'smbclient -L blah.blah.blah.blah' it asks for a password....ok I assume its the admin password for XP box, so I try it, but it still says error!
    WTF?! I don't believe I have it setup so that u have to enter a pswd to get into the drive? Any help appreciated.

    I used the following HOWTO followed it step by step and it worked. Of course I have tried the Cookbook way of doing it before and never got there.

    take a look at it at
    http://www.linuxorbit.com/howto/sambahowtopf.php3

    Hope this helps.

    Re:Connecting to WinXP from Linux

    Hey, I looked at that page but it doesn't seem to help either >
    Ok, I have 'smbclient' installed but not 'samba.' I don't want the WinBox to see Linux, I just want linux to access a drive in the WinBox that I have set as a shared. I followed everything in that link, but I think its only for boxes with samba installed?

    Oh by the way, I can send a message to him with 'smbclient -M host'

    Re:Connecting to WinXP from Linux

    Ok, here's what you need to do:

    1. Create a new directory:
    Code:
    mkdir ~/win
    2. Issue this command:
    Code:
    mount -t smbfs -o username=winusername,password=winpassword //winmachinename/sharename ~/win
    Substitute "winusername" with a valid username that is set up on the WinXP machine, "winpassword" with the password for this user, "winmachinename" with the network name of the WinXP machine, and sharename with the name of the shared drive on the WinXP machine. If it is successfull you should be able to access all the files on the shared WinXP drive in the ~/win folder.

    Re:Connecting to WinXP from Linux

    Ok Cloverm, tried that too, it says:
    2619: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess ( Access denied.)
    SMB connection failed.
    Dangit!! > Am I just gonna have to install SAMBA?! Sorry guys, but I can't seem to find anything on this. Everything I look for just concentrates on the samba server. Hopefully u guys/gals have any more ideas? Oh, I've only been messin wit linux for about a month( counting the days total ;D ) so bear with me. Thanks guys.

    Re:Connecting to WinXP from Linux

    Anyway, it looks like the username and/or password is incorrect for the WinXP machine. Try to create a new user account on the WinXP machine with a new username and password and try to use that to connect.

    Re:Connecting to WinXP from Linux

    I really don't know then. I still suspect that the problem is with the WinXP machine. Can you check if it is accessible from another Windows machine?

    You could try one more thing on the Linux box, installing LinNeighborhood. It's a GUI client to connect to Windows shares. Try to install it, see if it helps any.
