  1. thanks.that should be the reason why i am not seing the security tabs in my windows box..Im off to configuring SAMBA as a PDC now.Does anybody here have a working samba guide to PDC using Mandriva 2007?Again, thank you Ian.
  2. appreciate your reply but it seems my questions has not been answered. :sad:
  3. hi ian, added security=user in the globals section on my smb.conf but still no luck.i think security=user is the default so i guess it is not a problem. :unsure:
  4. hi all, i have a mandriva 2007 which has samba installed and a share on its reiserfs partition but i cannot seem to get acl support to work. i don't see any security tabs when i browse the share using the root account on my winxp computer.just wanna ask some questions here and much help is appreciated. 1. is acl supported on reiserfs? 2. is the linux kernel on my system(2.6.17-5mdv) supports acl or do i still have to patch it? 3. or do i have to change it to ext3 or xfs filesystem? below is my fsstab entry /dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1 /dev/hdc1 /home reiserfs notail,noatime,acl 1 2 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hdc5 /tmp ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hda6 /usr ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hda7 /var ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0 my smb.conf [global] workgroup = HOME server string = samba log level = 3 log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 100 socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 preferred master = No local master = No wins support = Yes nt acl support = yes [MyShare] comment = A Shared Drive browseable = yes writable = yes guest ok = no path = /home/MyShare need help.
  5. seems mr. google did the job for me.i found this iptable entry: iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -d www.iamnotloading.com -j ACCEPT which works perfectly. :)
  6. yes ian,i have squid setup as transparent proxy caching server.port 443 is block so https is not a problem on my side.
  7. hi all, ive disabled ecn and tcp window scaling is off but still some sites wont show up when it goes to my squid proxy. hopefully someone here would help me for the much needed iptable firewall rule to allow some sites not to pass through squid(i.e direct) hoping someone here would bail me out on this problem as ive been pulling my hair off for days on this one.
  8. found this info on mandriva 2007 errata page and that answers my problem. http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Releases/Mandr...T_dies_on_login i should have read the errata page before asking here.sorry mods. :wacko: but thanks again ian for the time. B)
  9. no.i am trying to access it from the localhost itself i.e on the same machine that swat and samba is installed on.
  10. hi all. recently installed samba server(3.0.23b) with swat on mandriva 2007 box.everything went smoothly but when i try to access samba via swat on my browser as root it keeps throwing me back to its login prompt eventhough i am 100% sure i entered the correct root password. (i am accessing it on the same machine where samba is installed.)before that ive already edited the swat file on the xinetd.d directory and change the option disable from "yes" to "no" and then run "service xinetd restart" any ideas ?
  11. hi all, its me again.i am trying to setup a samba fileserver in my /home partition using nt-style permissioning(just like windows server 2003).my question is how do i enable acl support on the etc/fstab on my /home partition? :unsure: Joel
  12. hi all, my network is up before my shorewall is started.how can i do the reverse of it?(i,e shorewall first before the ethxx because from what i ve read shorewall should first be the one up and running before the network interfaces should be up when the linux box boots up for added security measure. i would appreciate all your help. :)
  13. one of the linux gurus here in our place set it up using bridge utils? and proxyarp?.man, i dont know that stuff and the configs.he just added one nic to my gateway (i dunno how he set it up but it works..)i am still looking for a much simpler solution than the one he did.btw he remove the router and he connected the adsl modem to eth1,eth0 is the firewall ip and eth2 is the network bridge?!anyway thanks ianw1974 for the help.
