Current System Requirements
Connect to Windows 7 machine
- go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policy
- Local Policies - Security Options
- Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
- Send LM & NTLM responses
- Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
- Disable Require 128-bit encryption
- I think i might have figured this out, now that im on a roll...
- edit /etc/samba/smbusers and add to the line:
- nobody = guest pcguest smbguest <your domain accountname here>
- just the account name, not the whole DOMAIN\accountname
I am assuming you CAN contact your Freenasbox's webGUI from your win7 box. If not, check your connections...
Make sure your Freenasbox is up and running and that your Services|CIFS/SMB service is enabled (save and restart).
Make sure you have your shares properly defined in Services|CIFS/SMB|Shares and that you have the (edit share) "Set browseable" option ticked for each share (Save).
In windows7 open "windows explorer"; go to the bottom of the lefthand panel and click "network"; click in the textbox that says "search network" on the righthand part of your explorer window's bar (top right of windowframe); enter your freenasbox's name, the exact same one you baptized it in Services|CIFS/SMB|Settings|NetBIOS name and hit enter.
Your FreeNas box should come right up, but at times I have had to do this a few times, all the while right-clicking on the "computer" panel and selecting "refresh".
Once you find the freenas box, double click it (or singleclick-enter) and you should see your shares there; right-click the share you want and select "Map network drive". You will have the option of making the maping temporary or permanent.

- FreeNAS AMD64 Print Server Setup Guide looks promising
- To do this: Go to Network -> LAN
- In IPv4 Configuration, select Static Type, IP address change the final number to 250 from the IP FreeNAS currently is assigned, and Gateway your router's IP address (should already be present).
- Click Save at the bottom of the page.
- You will then need to reboot, as suggested by the link near the top.
- You will then need to login again using the newly assigned static IP given above.
I managed to get unison syncing doing the following:
- Downloaded the unison package (Note: link is for amd64) ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports ... .157_2.tbz
- Made sure I have a FreeNAS user with an actual home directory
- Extracted unison-text file in the user's home and made sure the rights are OK (execute for the user and the file belongs to the user)
- On the other machine (the one that connects to FreeNAS using SSH) created a unison profile that had to contain:
Code: Select all
(otherwise you get "unison: Command not found.")
If you haven't already, somewhere around step 4 you should do the usual unison / ssh setup.
