I cannot mount amahi folder to other computer in same networ

Postby rednwhite » Fri Sep 28, 2012 3:59 am

Thanks for reading

I set amahi on ubuntu 12.04

amahi is running well.

So I want to mount the folder into the my desktop( it's OS is ubuntu 10.4)


I read this article.

http://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/SharingToLinux


and

sudo aptitude install smbfs

-> well done on my desktop


I create folder 'temp_musics' on desktop

and then

I type on terminal "sudo mount.cifs '\\hda\Music' temp_musics -o user=xxxx"


but folder was not mounted .
only error message out...
these message is below....


mount error: could not resolve address for hda: No address associated with hostname
No ip address specified and hostname not found



But.. amahi is still running good!!
I can connect amahi in firefox with ip adress(192.168.0.17)
I can connect amahi's sever with VNC by IP.
I can send ping to amahi and ping is return in proper time( 0.98ms) by IP

amahi and my desktop is to be under same router..


What can I check to next step for mounting folder?

I guess the problem is maybe with port forwarding in router
I do not set any port forwarding to amahi server in router yet.
and I do not know which port should be porting to amahi server



please help me......

You need to follow the wiki guidance exactly if you have not done so. It may need updated for the newer version of Ubuntu as clients.

Thanks for reply.

Now I can mount the folder to my remote desktop.
but have two (or more) problem stil...

first.. I mount with

Code: Select all

sudo mount.cifs '\\192.168.0.20\Music' temp_musics -o user=tmmp1
it work....

instead of

Code: Select all

sudo mount.cifs '\\hda\Music' temp_musics -o user=tmmp1

it is not work..

Error message is
mount error: could not resolve address for hda: No address associated with hostname
No ip address specified and hostname not found

I don't know why this happen?
Is there difference of two command??

How can I use '\\hda' at mount command instead of IP address??



Second problem is..

permission of mounted folder is owned by root!!!
I cannot copy files to mounted folder.

How can I change the permission of mounted folder??



I am sorry for question of too easy problem.

but...

please help me...

The reason for the IP address tells me you have not turned off teh DHCP/DNS on your router. You should do that.

Secondly on permissions, to change them on the server do this:

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R firstadminuser:users /var/hda/files/share
The first admin user would be the one you created when install Ubuntu. The share is the folder you are trying to change permissions on.
