Configuring a Samba server The administrative user name in Linux is called root. In this lab, we needed to create the same user in Linux that exists in Windows XP so a user called administrator with a password of (you guessed it) password has already been created in Linux. This matches the username and password on the XP PC. Launch the “Linux + XP ” environment. 1. In a terminal window, type: smbpasswd –a administrator password (You may get an error about the passdb database, that is OK) 2. Type: ifconfig (and press Enter) This will give you a list of IP addresses. Use the first three numbers in the IP address that begins with “10” in place of the “10.0.29” as shown below. Also, write the complete IP address. You will need it for the last step on the XP computer. 3. In a terminal window, type: kedit /etc/samba/smb.conf 4. On line 18, change MYGROUP to WORKGROUP After line 28, add: hosts allow = 10.0.29. 5. After line 126 add: remote announce = 10.0.29.255 6.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
