    Windows 10 Standard User cannot connect to Red Hat Linux Share


    I have an issue that has been ongoing.
    I will use one user as an example, but it is happening with multiple users.

    We setup a new system with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (latest updates).
    All Windows systems have static IP addresses.
    We are using a domain and not a workgroup.
    Our server is running Red Hat Linux Server with Version 1.5 Samba.
    Our Sonicwall firewall is our DHCP server.
    SMB 1.0 (client, direct, server) is enabled on the Windows system.
    The Windows system has an administrator user (DEXX) and a standard user (JOHN).
    The Linux server has a general admin username and password.
    There is a user setup called JOHN and a folder named JOHN.
    The Red Hat Server has a public folder that all systems are supposed to be able to access to save and read files.

    Using the Linux admin user and password, DEXX can connect to public (or anything else).
    All systems can connect to public using the same user/password.

    Keep in mind that people who maintain our server do not know Windows.
    The people who maintain our desktops systems do not know Linux.

    Here is where the problem lies. JOHN cannot connect to public.
    The first error message says the user does not have permission to connect to the share.
    The second message says that you cannot connect to the same share using multiple usernames/passwords.
    Whether we try to connect using the domain \\DOMAN\Public or the ip address \\192/168\100\120\Public we get the same result.

    I have been through this forums and others and tried the various "fixes".
    net user * /d
    enabling SMB 1.0 in Windows 10
    modifying the registry
    enabling network discovery to auto start.
    Just to name a few.

    I think the issue is a permission issue in the way the Linux people setup the server.
    NO standard windows user can connect to public.
    Every admin windows user can (using the same admin user/pass - which is stupid!)
    But who wants to have every Windows user an admin user - especially beginners and novices.
    (we already had a user delete an entire folder, losing years of data)

    The people who maintain our server refuse to give me the root username/password so I can check myself how the linux users are setup. I am no expert, but I have used Linux in the past and know how to check permissions.

    Does anyone have experience with this Server/Client setup that may shed some light on what to look for or try to make this work correctly?

    Appreciate the help.

    :)

    Red Hat and Novell being Sued for Patent Infringement

    Little known company IP Innovation is attempting to sue both Red Hat and Novell for patent infringement involving Linux. According to the firm, both Red Hat and Novell’s Linux distributions violate patent number 5,072,412 for a “User Interface with Multiple Workspaces for Sharing Display System Objects” – a patent dating back to December 10th 1991 – as well as two other patents. The orginal statement is as follows:
    This is the first ever patent infringement litigation involving Linux.

    College to teach Linux over windows

    I suggest Fedora. It's based on Red Hat, which, from what I've been told, is a very common Distro for businesses.

    I wouldn't go with Ubuntu, as it's not quite "normal", as far as linux distros are concerned.

    Valve: Linux More Viable Than Windows 8 for Gaming

    Linux distros are far more versatile - CentOS is a common server OS built for stability - based on (if not I am wrong, Red Hat Enterprise)

    Take f.ex. BackTrack - perfect for network security testing (firewall, intrusion etc.)

    So my hope is that Valve got this thing right......a nother step in beeing Windows free....*Roll :roll:
