need help with new ubuntu server
 
2011/4/13 bill bixby <phyremon@yahoo.com>

i have been struggling for days with new ubuntu network.* cannot make server or linux machines "recognize" each other.* 1 windows machine shows up on network but none of the ubuntu machines - including server.* have loaded/installed many recommended programs onto server - am using samba on all machines - and have read many many many forums and on-line help but cannot figure out how to get server "recognized as the server" or for other ubuntu machines to be "seen" on network.* lots of super technical help and lots of how to install ubuntu server help out there but very little in between.* could really use a simple step by step guide to getting a linux network up and running.* not completely new to networks but am new to linux.* the simpler the the
better.* please help!

Just a tip..
If you wish to accomplish this in a home network and
without using samba, you need a router that supports receiving hostname
from client machines (through the DHCP request). Most cheap routers for
home networks do not seem to support that, I recently flashed my Linksys
router with OpenWRT and I could ping all of my machines using their
hostnames.

I also noticed that some enterprise-level routers do not support this.

Also, most recent Ubuntu releases support mDNS (as in Multicast DNS, similar to Apple's Bonjour) and they so identify a fake network with the .local as domain... Try ping your Ubuntu server from a Ubuntu client like this: $ ping servername.local , and then, vice versa, from the Ubuntu server: $ ping clientname.local


Not only it works for me with ping, regardless of the router or DNS capabilities, but I can use every single protocol I have tried, from SSH to SAMBA
Have in mind this will not make any sense to a Windows server or client, as they understand the machines by the actual NetBIOS name... and probably the domain, in some cases.


So, from a Windows machine to map a Ubuntu/Samba share, use the SERVERSHARE address... and from a Ubuntu machine o map a Ubuntu/Samba share, probably server.localshare would accomplish the same


Also, check if there are any firewall rule to prevent your access, and that the /etc/samba/smb.conf has the correct WORKGROUP variable set in all machines se SAME Domain Name (if you are not using a Domain like in an AD installation, the WORKGROUP will be the workgroup name... does that make any sense?)


One thing that will not work is the newer, flashier, homegroup... something that just Windows 7 not members of office networks are able to access so far (up to my knowledge)
