• Home Network Share files


    I get the following trying to share my “Public” folder, to see from my other home computers. Not sure what it means or how to fix it.

    Samba's testparm returned error 1: Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
    rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1
    
    024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)
    Error loading services.
    
  • @gord IMHO samba is a unstable hard to configure crappy thing…

    I find this one very easy to configure and secure:

    https://xyne.archlinux.ca/projects/quickserve/
    https://www.ostechnix.com/instantly-share-files-folders-arch-linux/

    gpg --recv-key 1D1F0DC78F173680
    yaourt -S quickserve
    

    then start the shareserver like this: quickserve <path_to_file_or_folder>

    ╰─➤  quickserve <path_to_file_or_folder>
    MulticastQuickserveServer
      PID              30020
      Addresses       
        lo:      127.0.0.1
        enp0s25: <your-computer-ip-adress>
      Port             8000
      Multicast        False
      Filelist         None
      Filterlist       None
      MOTD             None
      Upload Directory None
      Tar              Disabled
      Paths           
        Share
        <path_to_file_or_folder>
      Static Peers     None
    
    

    and get the files over your browser on remote machines… with url http://<your-computer-ip-adress>:8000

  • Ok, great, that allows me to see inside the folder I want to share from within the browser rather than nautilus, but how do I see that from another computer, or how does my windows computer or mac computer see that folder?

  • @joekamprad said in Home Network Share files:

    and get the files over your browser on remote machines… with url http://<your-computer-ip-adress>:8000

    As i say before ;) This is now shared over local network with the ip adress of the serving machine…
    You can open this also on the remote Windows machine inside the browser…

  • How do I determine what My laptop ip address is??

  • when you start the server inside a terminal, it will give you this information, as seen in my post before:
    then start the shareserver like this: quickserve <path_to_file_or_folder>

    ╰─➤  quickserve <path_to_file_or_folder>
    MulticastQuickserveServer
      PID              30020
      Addresses

      Multicast        False
      Filelist         None

  • Ok, that allowed me to see my folders from iMac, I attempted to copy and paste a .jpg file from on box to the other…it did not do anything.

    Now I left the terminal open on the laptop after running “quickserve” it that right to do that or should I ctrl>c from the terminal.

    I am trying to be a cheap skate as I moved all my dropbox files on to the iMac as I did not want to renew…that subscription.

  • This quickserve is a simple server, to have it running keep the terminal open, to quit press ctrl+c…

    If you want to share files between Linux and Mac, why you want to setup samba?
    sshfs or nfs would be the ones you can run easely from all nix systems.
    Also rsync should work to move bigger file amounts or folders…

    rsync --progress --partial -avz /folder/to/copy/ [email protected]:/remote/folder

    Because I know nothing of them or how the work, how to set them up etc… samba used to do the trick just fine, but the builds get progressively worse. Remember this old curmudgeon just likes to point and shoot with a mouse.

    Having checked out the two links, installing either of them is not an option, that is way over my head. I may be forced to buy a cloud service again.

    Thats fine! i was only wondering ;)

    As i understand you want to copy folder/s from one machine to the other?

    Doing this over the network needs some configuration… or research.

  • with quickserve you can only copy when you rightclick and save link as for files not for folders…
    I can take a look to find something easy to do what you want…

  • https://nitroshare.net/ maybe?

    NitroShare is designed to make transferring files from one device to another extremely simple.

    yaourt -S nitroshare

  • @gord

    Check out Nextcloud for a propper replacement of dropbox.

    I will test a snap in a vm later today and let you know if theres an easy way of setting this up in Antergos.

    I make things work…
    My humble wiki: https://anotherlinux.com/

  • Resolved, I am marking is resolve as I got samba working. I also have my 1T external hd that was my mac mini back up, I just reformatted it and it serves well to transfer my dropbox files on too.

    Thank you so much for all you help joekamprad.

  • you are welcome!
