Description:

Smb4K is a SMB/CIFS (Windows) share browser for KDE. It uses the Samba software suite to access the SMB and CIFS shares of the local network neighborhood. Its purpose is to provide a program that's easy to use and has as many features as possible.

Features:
* Scanning for (active) workgroups, hosts, and shares
* Support of the CIFS (Linux) and SMBFS (FreeBSD) file system
* Mounting and unmounting of shares (using the KAuth framework)
* Access to the files of a mounted share using a file manager or terminal
* Auto-detection of external mounts and unmounts
* Remounting of previously used shares on program start
* Miscellaneous infos about remote network items and mounted shares
* Network search
* WINS server support
* Preview of the contents of a share
* Several methods to look up the initial list of workgroups and domains
* Default login
* Special handling of homes shares
* Ability to bookmark favorite shares and organize them in groups
* System tray widget
* Support of advanced Samba options
* Support of printer shares
* KWallet support
* Synchronization of a remote share with a local copy and vice versa
* Ability to define custom options for individual servers and shares
* Laptop support through the Solid hardware device framework
* Wake-On-LAN capabilities
* Plasmoid for desktop integration
* Profiles for different network neighborhood setups

Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD are supported. Smb4K might also run under different operating systems.

The only Operating system on this Computer "Guru" is Kubuntu 10.04, My Other Computer "Outlaw" Has Kubuntu 10.04 and XP in Virtual Box, Which I never really use unless I'm showing someone how virtual box works. My Girlfriend on the network Has Windows XP Pro.

The Output was from my Kubuntu Machine "Guru". I completely wiped the hard drive before installing Kubuntu both times so I'm not sure why or how it is possible Samba is giving that output.

I Just got done reinstalling Kubuntu on Guru again just to see if I would get the same results and I did and that is what the output was from. Another strange thing is that I used the Same install DVD to install Kubuntu 10.04 one of my friend's laptops' and smb4k is showing the tree with exactly the same software setup as I have on this Dell laptop.

So I'm not sure why I get better results with my friend's laptop than I get with my Dell & Toshiba Laptops?

Strange...

What operating system is running on Guru? This error should not occur with Windows 2000 and up or Samba. If you've got Windows 98 installed, you might want to consider setting this option to TRUE. However, the smb.conf manual page (http://samba.org/samba/docs/man/manpages-3/smb.conf.5.html) advises against it.

I'm using Kubuntu 9.10 on one of my laptops & 10.04 on another laptop, I also have 2 windows xp computers.
After networking all computers, only my 2 linux computers use SMB4K Version 0.10.4 . My window computers access and share files back and forth, and my windows machines can also access my linux shared files, but from both of my linix machines I open SMB4K, and click on scan network, and vioala it shows all workgroups and all the hosts are shown as I click on each workgroup and the host list drops down. But unfortunately after I click on any of the hosts in a workgroup it says "querying host for list of shares", then eventually after recieving no errors, it says "done", but the share list never drops down, eccept if
I click "Guru" the host computer I'm working on it drops down the shared file list just fine, then I can click on the shared file of choice and it automatically mounts it. For all of the other hosts, I have to go to the host computer and write down the host name & name of the shared file I want to mount, then I go back to "Guru" and click mount manually, enter the share, IP Address, and workgroup and it then has no problem at all mounting any shared file on any computer. This is the first time SMB4K has done this,
I've been using this program for a couple years. The only difference is that I just freshly installed Kubuntu
on both of my new laptops, installed all updates, and added them to the network. I've never been able to network
a linux computer, but decided I'd just take the time and get it figured out. I've got it, but still have one thing stopping me.

I'm not sure if this is a Sambe Issue or a smb4k setting Issue.

What can I do to get smb4k to show all hosts shared files ?

I understand that you are able to discover all hosts present on the network, but are unable to get their shared folders, when you click on a server.

My first question is: Have you tried the latest version 0.10.7? Does the problem persist?

If latest version does not fix your problem, the easiest way to figure out what is wrong would be that you provide me with the shell output of the following command:

$ net rpc share list -l -S <SERVER_NAME> -I <SERVER_IP> -U <USER> -d2

Replace the values in brackets with the appropriate ones. Enter your password if you are asked for it.

I'm using smb4k 0.10.4 and there is no update available yet for Kubuntu. Not even if I change my update sources. I'll have to wait for that to become available.

I tried that command a couple different ways and I get nowhere:

jason@Guru:~$
jason@Guru:~$ $ net rpc share list -l -S <Outlaw> -I <192.168.1.3> -U <jason> -d2
bash: Outlaw: No such file or directory
jason@Guru:~$ sudo $ net rpc share list -l -S <Outlaw> -I <192.168.1.3> -U <jason> -d2
bash: Outlaw: No such file or directory
jason@Guru:~$ net rpc share list -l -S <Outlaw> -I <192.168.1.3> -U <jason> -d2

Thanks for the output. However, for the command to work correctly, you need to omit the brackets, i.e. the command should look like this:

net rpc share list -l -S Outlaw -I 192.168.1.3 -U jason -d2

Sorry, I didn't phrase this clearly.

Hi,

I can see, but not mount the shares from 0.10.1 on Intrepid.

The error message is "mount error 112 = host is down"

I can't even see the shares, unless I manually select RAP. It is also listing non-existent shares (old shares from before a major repartition), but I guess that's not an smb4k thing?

I am running a SOHO nw with a dhcp router, and sw firewalls on everything (including the Win 98).

I can mounting the 98 shares from XP pro (on another pc). Note xp does not list the non-existent shares that show up in Intrepid.

I can mount W2K shares (running on the same, multiboot pc as 98) from smb4k/Intrepid no problem.

Thanks!

This is not an Smb4K problem but a Samba problem. Obviously the CIFS client program cannot handle W9x shares properly. However, I do not have a fix, because Kubuntu (as well as Debian) does not ship smbmount/smbumount anymore (they are links to mount.cifs und umount.cifs, actually).

Hi,

I found this:

Checked in Intrepid /sbin/ & found

unmount.cifs (both shared libraries)

and

mount.smbfs (shell script)

It just occurred to me that your problem might be related to a wrong port setting. W98 uses the (old) SMB protocol that listens on port 139. The default value for mounting in Smb4K is 445, though. Can you mount the shares when you define port 139 for mounting (Custom Options dialog->File system port)?

I'll try it and let you know...

Thanks!

Hi,

Custom Options/SMB port was already set to port 139 (apparently the default?).

In Configure/Samba, switching File system port from 445 to 139 made no difference.

Report

dustpuppy

Yes, 139 is the default for the SMB port. The custom file system port has to be set for every single share (I know that this is not very comfortable and will change it in one of the upcoming releases). But since you already set the global file system port to 139, changing the port won't help here.

Since you already have recent versions of Samba and the kernel in intrepid, I have no advice for you at the moment.

To check if this is an Smb4K bug or a problem of Samba's CIFS client program/the kernel, could you please do me a favor and post the output of the following shell command:

$ /sbin/mount.cifs //<w98_server>/<share_name> <mount_point> -o user=<your_username>,ip=<w98_server_ip>

Replace the placeholders in brackets with the appropriate values. If the mounting should fail, please also provide the outout of

$ /sbin/mount.cifs //<w98_server>/<share_name> <mount_point> -o guest,ip=<w98_server_ip>
