Samba: Sharing Files between Fedora 12 and Windows 7...

  • How to set up and configure samba to share files between Fedora 12 and Windows 7 in a wireless WPA2 network.

First of all, ensure network connectivity...
- Because I need to map my linux drive to windows, I need to setup a static ip to my wireless port in my Fedora 12 desktop. To do this I edited my wpa_supplicant. as follows:
@ /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant file, the following lines should be present...
INTERFACES="-iwlan0"
DRIVERS="-Dwext"
OTHER_ARGS="-f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log"
@ /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1
network={
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
proto=WPA RSN
pairwise=CCMP TKIP
group=CCMP TKIP WEP104 WEP40
}
