ISDN Modem config + Samba Config

ISDN Modem config + Samba Config

Post by Stefano Poglian » Thu, 20 Jan 2000 04:00:00

Hi everybody,

    question from a newbie used to Windows NT....

I have a USR Courier IMODEM and an ISDN line. I have been
able to make it running with WNT 4.0 adding an extension string
in the Modem Configuration Panel like "*v2=0S67...." .

I was trying to use "kppp" to set up a dial up with my ISP but I was
not able to make it running. My question is the following :
    Is kppp the best utility for me to use or should I go  to "chat + ppp"
instead ?
    Should I use the "isdn4linux" package instead ?

Then I installed SAMBA and it works fine between the new Linux box and my
Laptop. My question is the following :
    Does it exist in GNOME or KDE an applet such as "Network Neighborhood"
    which shows the Computers I am currently able to browse?
    If yes, ok. If not, I guess I have to use the "smbmount" utility on the
command line,
    correct ?

Thanks a lot for any suggestion. If possible, I would apreciate also example
files for the modem.

Best regards



1. Samba config on Redhat 7.1 Server config issues?

I'm a "newbie" when it comes to Linux and Samba, but have worked with
NetWare and NT for years.  I'am setting up a Linux Server for a friend for
his business as my first venture into the Open Source "market" (though I
plan on doing more) and whould appriciate any help on my configuration.

The problem is the Win 98 machines "see" the server in the network
nieghborhood but when a connection is tryed by clicking on it and a password
is entered I get a password incorrect, try again error.  I have tried to
update the password on the Linux box and still after syncing and even
restarting the samba I get the ame error.  I know both user name and
password are case sensitive.  The .log files show no clue,  so I believe the
problem lies in the passwd file or sync there of, but being new with this I
don't really know where to go from here or even if that is the right
direction.  ;)


The smb.conf is as follows:

   smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
   passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
   domain master = yes
   encrypt password = yes
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
   short preserve case = no
   wins support = true
   max log size = 1000
   debug level = 3
   preserve case = no
   security = user
   ssl ca certfile = /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt
   unix password sync = Yes
   local master = yes
   workgroup = TRITON
   server string = Samba for Triton Insurance
   log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
   netbios name = TRITONFS01
   guest account = guest
   os level = 65
   default = global
   default case = lower

   path = /home/%u
   writable = yes
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   create mode = 0750

   path = /home/Shared/Applications
   writable = yes

   comment = Public Application Files
   public = yes

   path = /home/Shared/Documents
   writable = yes

   comment = Public Document Files
   public = yes
