I have an Ubuntu Server (Hardy LTS) virtual machine, in which im trying to share a folder via samba.
I can list shares locally fine, via:
smbclient -L localhost
But using similar on my host machine, where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the Ubuntu IP (OS X):
smbclient -L //xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -U myusername
Connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx at port 139 error connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:139 (Connection refused) Error connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (Connection refused) lang_tdb_init: /usr/lib/samba/en_GB.UTF-8.msg: No such file or directory Connection to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx failed (Error NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_REFUSED)
Is this a samba error, or a firewall error?
My smb conf file, is the default, with the following changes:
interfaces = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/8 eth0 security = user username map = /etc/samba/smbusers [homes] read only = no valid users = %S comment = Home Directories browseable = yes
