Installation and Upgrades / Re: Trouble with Open Office - repair

I have seen problems this on ubuntu browsing samba shares via nautalis.   Try doing a CIFS mount to your local file system and browse that way.

mount -t cifs ...

were you the only person accessing the file?  It could be a file locking issue.

Installation and Upgrades / Re: Cannot login to my domain
« on: September 03, 2008, 02:38:51 pm »

Could you please try with a different domain name and netbios name. Use different names for each one, and please use names which you don't have in your local DNS.

If the computers you are trying yo join are in the same network you don't need to mess with DNS stuff.

Don't forget to restart your windows machine once you have changed the configuration on your eBox machine before trying join the domain.

Javi, I added a ticket for this a while back.

Installation and Upgrades / Re: Thunderbird + LDAP Adress book
« on: September 03, 2008, 02:27:52 pm »

This has been a request by other users [1]. Currently, ebox doesn't natively support an addressbook.  It would likely be an add-on module.  If you are familiar with LDAP, there is nothing stopping you from creating your own LDAP branch containing address book entries.

Please post the following files from the server:


More than likely it's one of those two files.

Sounds like the info is still in the tdb files.

Try this:

1) Stop Samba

2) mv /var/cache/samba/*.tdb{,.old}

3) Start samba

4) Change the netbios name.

5) Try browsing the new machine name.

Good luck.

What version?  Was this an existing unbutu install?  I run ntop on my ebox servers just fine...this isn't a virtualized machine is it?

DELL=paperweight.  Not saying that to be rude, it's just the way it is when it comes to Linux printing.  Take a look at  You might get lucky and find a printer that is close.

What do your log files say?  This needs more info.  Detail your network configuration and and computer/domain  names.


See if you can see the Domain properly

SSH  in the server (SMARTBLAST) and run

root#  smbclient -L YOURSERVER -U%

        Sharename      Type      Comment
        ---------      ----      -------
        IPC$           IPC       IPC Service (Samba 3.0.28a)
        netlogon     Disk      Network Logon Service
        ADMIN$      IPC       IPC Service (Samba 3.0.28a)

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------
        YOURSERVER     Samba 3.0.28a

        Workgroup         Master
        ---------            -------

Now, Make sure you can browse a users home share, check your logs.

smbclient //YOURSERVER/joeblow -Ujoeblow%password

So two people cannot edit a file at once?
Or is this a problem w/ Nautilus?

i don't know enough about file locking to give you a quick answer, but check out this document:

Installation and Upgrades / Re: How to change users homeDirectory
« on: July 26, 2008, 04:42:58 pm »
We use this attribute in Samba module to establish the user home directory. If you're not using this module, you may edit its attribute manually using any LDAP editing tool.

Direction: ldap://<eBoxIP>:389
Credentials: contain of /var/lib/ebox/conf/ebox-ldap.passwd

Just wanted note: LDAP access from the internal network is blocked by default now (for good reasons), so you will have to create a firewall rule to allow your admin PC access to the LDAP port on ebox.

Great...I'll have to test this out.

Installation and Upgrades / Re: objects with a range of ips
« on: July 02, 2008, 04:58:55 am »
so just with an entire subnet?
not say a group like to

Use CIDR notation to block ranges. would give you a block of 126 hosts. 
Code: [Select]
HostMin:           11000000.10101000.00000000.0 0000001
HostMax:         11000000.10101000.00000000.0 1111110


HostMin:         11000000.10101000.00000000.1 0000001
HostMax:         11000000.10101000.00000000.1 1111110

Like this...

See Screenshots.

We have two public IP addresses from our ISP.  I want be able to specify which ports get forwarded to which )internal) IP addresses.

IE publicip1:80 -> lancomputer1:8080
IE publicip2:80 -> lancomputer2:8080

Can this be done from the ebox administrator?

Would 1:1 NAT help you?  While is does require some manual editing, it might do the trick as well.
