Porteus as a Server

Post#1 by Jack » 19 Dec 2015, 01:25

I have a Server and I want to use Porteus as the software run it as the Server. What packages will I need to add to Porteus to do it or are they all ready there? I would like to remove the desktop if I need to. Any idea to help me to do it?
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Jack, ok - no problem. Look at this topic Установка и настройка Samba - общий доступ к сетевым дискам

I think you understand Russian language :D

Jack, it's simple.
1. you are need to download and install modules

Code: Select all

usm -u all
usm -g gnutls
usm -g samba
2. tweak /etc/samba/smb.conf
3. run the commands

Code: Select all

smbpasswd -a root
smbpasswd -e root
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.samba
4. start samba server via command

Code: Select all

/etc/rc.d/rc.samba start
5. find ip samba server via command ifconfig and use this ip on another local machine.

Login is root
Password is toor

Blaze or anyone, I'm trying on my 32bit laptop first.

1. you are need to download and install modules

In my Porteus 3.1 Mate I all ready have "gnutls-3.1.16-i486-1 and samba-4.1.0-i486-2" so I didn't need to install them.

2. tweak /etc/samba/smb.conf

And here is mine "/etc/samba/smb.conf" what line would I need to tweak? For what lines need to be tweak just change the color on that line so I would know to fix or change it.

Code: Select all

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba, 
# read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection. This may be obtained from:
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf
#
# Many working examples of smb.conf files can be found in the 
# Samba-Guide which is generated daily and can be downloaded from: 
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) 
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors. 
#
#======================= Global Settings =====================================
[global]

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: LINUX2
   workgroup = WORKGROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
   server string = Samba Server

# Security mode. Defines in which mode Samba will operate. Possible 
# values are share, user, server, domain and ads. Most people will want 
# user level security. See the Samba-HOWTO-Collection for details.
   security = share

# Added by Brokenman for Porteus
usershare path = /home/guest/Shared
usershare max shares = 5
usershare allow guests = yes
usershare owner only = yes

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
;   hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.

# If you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this
   load printers = yes

# you may wish to override the location of the printcap file
;   printcap name = /etc/printcap

# on SystemV system setting printcap name to lpstat should allow
# you to automatically obtain a printer list from the SystemV spool
# system
;   printcap name = lpstat

# It should not be necessary to specify the print system type unless
# it is non-standard. Currently supported print systems include:
# bsd, cups, sysv, plp, lprng, aix, hpux, qnx
;   printing = cups

# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must add this to /etc/passwd
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
;  guest account = pcguest

# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
   log file = /var/log/samba.%m

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
   max log size = 50

# Use password server option only with security = server
# The argument list may include:
#   password server = My_PDC_Name [My_BDC_Name] [My_Next_BDC_Name]
# or to auto-locate the domain controller/s
#   password server = *
;   password server = <NT-Server-Name>

# Use the realm option only with security = ads
# Specifies the Active Directory realm the host is part of
;   realm = MY_REALM

# Backend to store user information in. New installations should 
# use either tdbsam or ldapsam. smbpasswd is available for backwards 
# compatibility. tdbsam requires no further configuration.
;   passdb backend = tdbsam

# Using the following line enables you to customise your configuration
# on a per machine basis. The %m gets replaced with the netbios name
# of the machine that is connecting.
# Note: Consider carefully the location in the configuration file of
#       this line.  The included file is read at that point.
;   include = /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.%m

# Configure Samba to use multiple interfaces
# If you have multiple network interfaces then you must list them
# here. See the man page for details.
;   interfaces = 192.168.12.2/24 192.168.13.2/24 

# Browser Control Options:
# set local master to no if you don't want Samba to become a master
# browser on your network. Otherwise the normal election rules apply
;   local master = no

# OS Level determines the precedence of this server in master browser
# elections. The default value should be reasonable
;   os level = 33

# Domain Master specifies Samba to be the Domain Master Browser. This
# allows Samba to collate browse lists between subnets. Don't use this
# if you already have a Windows NT domain controller doing this job
;   domain master = yes 

# Preferred Master causes Samba to force a local browser election on startup
# and gives it a slightly higher chance of winning the election
;   preferred master = yes

# Enable this if you want Samba to be a domain logon server for 
# Windows95 workstations. 
;   domain logons = yes

# if you enable domain logons then you may want a per-machine or

;   wins server = w.x.y.z

# behalf of a non WINS capable client, for this to work there must be
# at least one	WINS Server on the network. The default is NO.

3. run the commands

Just type as shown below?

Code: Select all

  smbpasswd -a root
    smbpasswd -e root
    chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.samba
4. start samba server via command

Can I just type this "chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.samba" to do it?

Code: Select all

/etc/rc.d/rc.samba start
5. find ip samba server via command ifconfig and use this ip on another local machine.

What line to look at?

1. ok
2. about /etc/samba/smb.conf

find

Code: Select all

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: LINUX2
   workgroup = MYGROUP
replace with

Code: Select all

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: LINUX2
   workgroup = WORKGROUP
find

Code: Select all

[homes]
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
replace with

Code: Select all

;[homes]
;   comment = Home Directories
;   browseable = no
;   writable = yes
at the end of the file /etc/samba/smb.conf add these lines

Code: Select all

[porteus]
path = /mnt/sdb1
public = yes
guest ok = yes
writable = yes
printable = no
replace path on your path what you want to share.
replace name of share [porteus] on your name, for example [myshare] and save changes.

3. yes. Remeber
Login is root
Password is toor
if it needs, type them.

4. about chmod 755 don't test it. I think - yes.

5. Your ip is 192.168.0.4
Remember this ip must be static, if it doesn't static - you are need to tweak DHP rules in your router.

For example, at my job

And I guest I need to be sign in as root for it to work?
I don't test guest account. I always use root user cheatcode to login.
Probably, you can test guest account. For guest login and password is guest

Blaze,

2. In the "/etc/samba/smb.conf" I found these lines should I leave them as is?

Code: Select all

# Added by Brokenman for Porteus
usershare path = /home/guest/Shared
usershare max shares = 5
usershare allow guests = yes
usershare owner only = yes
Will I have to change anything in these lines if use the above lines?

Code: Select all

[porteus]
path = /mnt/sdb1
public = yes
guest ok = yes
writable = yes
printable = no
3. Do I need to run every time I restart my computer?

Code: Select all

smbpasswd -a root
smbpasswd -e root
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.samba
4. I will try this "chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.samba".

If I have to restart 3 and 4 after a reboot I will try and make script to do it.

Sorry if I'm a pain but I'm up in age and a little slow.

Jack

Jack, I think

Code: Select all

usershare allow guests = yes
usershare owner only = yes
does not need.

about

Code: Select all

[porteus]
path = /mnt/sdb1
public = yes
guest ok = yes
writable = yes

Yes. You are need to:
  • replace path on your path (for example /mnt/sdb1) what you want to share.
  • replace name of share [porteus] on your name, for example [myshare] and save changes.
3 and 4. No. These commands run once and everything will work. Your script does not need.

Question... when you want a fileserver, say, for a local network, e.g. media streaming, so, mp3, video, images sharing, maybe a media center.
All Linux based. Me thinks a LAMP or any Samba is overkill, no?

Would not NFS or whatitcalled, the newer Linux network file sharing thingy again?

Would these not be a more slim solution than using one that supports SM-Windoze when one not needs that?
Cheers!
Yours Rava
