Access Domain Network Shares Without User / Password Authentication?
Sep 21, 2011
I`ll get straight to the point. I have at work a domain of computers. on one of the computers (I have admin rights) I want to share a folder that can be accessed by other computers that are not in the domain. By default accessing that share requires a user/pass. My question is: can I configure something on the computer (running windows 2008 server) to the shared folder so that other computers that are not from the domain will gain access to without user/pass requirement (like a normal share)?
We have configured ACS 5.1 for autenticating wireless users with active directory, which is working fine now.But we would like implement that single user should be authenticated through ACS . If any user try to access WLAN from multi system will be notified with multi login access restriction.Can we implement this policy in acs, if possible what are the exact configuration changes we have to implement.
We have cross domain trust relationship established and I have added the user group in our ACS 5.1. we are using Active directory as an external Identity store. Also I have created a rule in the 'Access polices' to allow the user group. From the cross domain, I use email@example.com as a user id, but I get this error message 13036 Selected Shell Profile is DenyAccess.
I have a remote access VPN profile configured on an ASA 5540. This profile is almost identical to the same profiles configured on other ASA 5540. The profile is linked to Active Directory for authentication. For some reason, users are not being prompted for the domain name field when connecting to the firewall, on the other firewalls they get prompted for all three (user/pass/domain).
All the firewalls are running 8.0(4) 32. And the following is the configuration of the firewall that I am experiencing issues with:
ip local pool TESTVPN 10.244.124.1-10.244.127.254 mask 255.255.252.0
group-policy TESTCERT internal group-policy TESTCERT attributes banner value **** WARNING **** banner value You are Now Successfully Connected (code)
I am migrating from ACS 4.2 to 5.2. In 4.2 you could assign one user to auth via Internal Database and another user to auth via Radius Token Server. I cannot find how to do this with 5.2. There is a note in the doc that states 'Identity-related attributes are not available as conditions in a service selection policy'. Does this mean that you can only choose one auth method for all users? If it is possible to have multiple methods, how am I able to accomplish this?
Have a school which is split into 2 domains (and 2 different subnets). A logged in windows domain user from domain A needs to access a windows share on domain B. So I made a bat file on the pc in domain A to map a drive to the share on domain B, using the net use command but specifying login credentials of a domain user from domain B.The pc on domain A has it's hosts file edited so it can access the server on domain B which the share is on, ping and everything to this server works fine.I created a user in domain B with the corresponding login details as in the batch file, same un and pwd, it didn't work. If I specify the un and pwd in the batch file as the domain admin account on domain B, it works fine everytime. I'm pretty sure it's not a premissions thing as I have given the inital user that I specified in the batch file full control to the share permissions and security permissions on the share in question, it still wouldn't work.
All I can think of, but can't put into good technical words, is that this user I am specifying in the batch file not only needs to have access to the share itself but has to enter the other domain as well, would there be some protocol or something in which it does not have permissions to use effictively but the domain admin clearly does as it works fine for domain admin?
how to find the current logged on user on a domain network? I tried nbtscan but it gives me ip address, machine name and mac address. In the server column it gives <server> and in the user name column it give <unknown>.
I replaced my old Linksys WRT54G wireless router with the new E3000 wireless router. The installation was a breeze, but not what followed henceforth. I was able to access the internet on my wireless desktop/laptop/Netflix ROKU player/WD TV live media player, but lost access to all the network shares. I spent a lot of useless time with Linksys chat support and phone support, where they said their responsibility is only getting the internet working. They said they are not responsible for file and printer sharing issues, and suggested I use a third-party paid support package to resolve my issues. Over and above spending a hefty amount for the lates top of the line E3000 router, I was not going to shell out additional money for support.
Thinking that it could probably be due to some Windows XP firewall/anti-virus (McAfee) issues, I disconnected the E3000 and connected the old WRT54G back again. Lo and behold, everything started working fine again. I could access the shared folders of my desktop (to which my router is attached) and printer, from the wireless laptop/desktop/media player just as before without any problems. I then switched back to the E3000 and lost the shares again. So I have come to the conclusion, there is definitely some setting within the E3000 that is preventing the file and printer sharing. I just can't figure out what it could be, and am at a point of returning it back to the store as defective. The extra N-speed is useless to me if my devices can't access the network shared content.Also, I tried to set up the UPnP media server feature of the E3000 by attaching USB storage and configuring it via the Linksys web based utility, but my media player is unable to access the content.
I would like to setup a VPN to allow employees nomad that connect to our network from outside. Our router is a Cisco SA520 I tried different configurations without success ...Here is the current VPN configuration:I created my users IPSec, I can connect remotely, but I do not have network access ... Unable to access network shares, impossible to ping.
My company is using an RV016 router as a gateway to our internal network. My end goal is to allow remote users to access network shares via Samba.I've been trying to create a VPN using the router with absolutely no luck. I've tried QuickVPN. I've tried creating a client-to-site group vpn. I've tried creating a client-to-site tunnel vpn. I've tried pptp. Nothing will allow me to establish a VPN connection. Sometimes there is information logged in the router but most of the time there is not.
I have an RV042 using Quick VPN to connect to a remote network. I have port 1723 forwarded to a static IP address on a Windows 7 Pro 64 bit PC. I can establish the VPN and ping a printer but not the Win 7 PC. I can not acccess any shares on the pc via the IP address. It has Norton Antivirus and Windows Firewall. This remote PC replaced a Windows xp PC that allowed access to the shares. I have tried access with a Windows XP Pro and Windows Vista Home Premium PC. Neither have worked.
I have two xp pro machines that im trying to share an accounting system on one machine is the sage accounting and i want to join another machine to it the sage is working on both machines except the one is not allowing reports, comes up with an erro when i map drives i have to put in a user name and password (only once) then it works but im suspecting this is causing a problem for the reports on the previous two machines that worked fine...(we have just upgraded both) it asked for a windows password but you just pressed enter and it logged in.how do you get two xp machines to talk without password prompt i have run the networking wizard on both, and they are both on the same workgroup
I am having trouble accessing shares via client SSL VPN. I have an ASA 5505 running 8.4(4)1 The share is on on Ubuntu server 11.04 running Samba 3.5.8
This may not be strictly a Cisco issue and it seems to be an interoperbility issue between ASA and Samba. Or simply the smb.conf configuration.
I suspect the issue is down to the interpretation of Lanman on the ASA as I know the usernames and passwords work correctly when accesing the shares from other platforms (Windows Vista and Ubuntu desktop 12.04)
When monitoring the Samba logs I get the following errors: (amongst others)
ntlm_password_check: NT MD4 password check failed for user testuser Storing account testuser with RID 1000 check_ntlm_password: sam authentication for user [testuser] FAILED with error
I have a Active Directory user that cannot log onto any computer that's on my organizational domain. The error is "You cannot log on because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer"
How to get rid of Username Password prompt for VPN user connecting to computer with guest access on shared folders?If a VPN user types any word in the user name and hits enter without password, it gets in and sees shared folders, but I want this prompt to be disabled.
I am running Windows Server 2003 with 10 computers running XP connected on a domain network. When i go to my network places - entire network - microsoft windows network - click on domain - i can see all other pc connected here but when i click on them they are asking for username and password. Even if i give username and password they are not opening, i even tried to give Server username and password but it is not working. (All my xp machines have different username and password).
How do i get access to these pc folders? Do i need permission for server?
We have a computer running Windows 2000 Pro that used to connect to a domain at work. Upon bootup, it asks for the user/password.Yesterday we tried to connect it to a little home network by changing the domain to a workgroup with a different name (network name that i used at home) as well. Now when it boots up, asks for a user/password, but now it does not recognize my user name and password.I can log in as an administrator to the Workgroup with the new name. but i cannot access the old Domain with its user and passwords. I tried to change back to the old name and to domain, but when doing that i get and error messsage which says: The following error occurred validating the name "xxxxxxx" (network name that I use at home) this condition may be caused by a DNS lookup problem. so I'm not sure if a should run the clear DNS cache. and if in doing that I'll be able to restored it back to the stage that i was before I made the changes.
We have shared network drives on my network whose folder structure must not change. We have users who must have full access to the contents of these folders and be able to read/modify/erase and create new files inside these folders. However, the structure of the folders must not change so that other users/programs can locate files within these folders.
Some users sometimes "aggressively click" and drag and drop folders into different locations and can't remember where they dropped them. This makes them inaccessible for other users. We have a lot of folders so I implemented FileWatcher Simple program to monitor these folders and if there is a change in folder structure I get an email with an attached log. The log tells me which folders got created/deleted/renamed and I am able to restore the folder structure if need; but I cannot see who caused these changes.
1. Is there a way for me to see which user in my domain modified the folders?
2. Is there a way to disable users from drag and dropping, deleting, renaming folders yet still maintain full access to the files within these folders?
We had a power outage that kicked off our server and our network switch (2008R2, Cisco2960), before we could get it back up, a user was able to log into his laptop.
The user used the domain login - not the local machine account - he obviously wasn't able to access any shared resources, but how did he log in with a domain account, when the server and switch were both off?
I started getting into IT (as a job) a little less than a year ago, though I've been working with computers for close to 20. So networking was never something I was into while working on computers at home. I've been handed a significant position at work and I am learning a lot as I go. I want to know how to grant permissions for a domain user to a directory without adding the user to all of the sub-directories and directories. The only way I've figure thus far is to grant permissions to said folder, then inside remove the "inherit permissions..." but then I have to manually remove the permissions to every other sub-folder.I want to add a single path to a folder by adding single permissions to each folder until the directory in question is reached.
I have a desktop without a wireless card and i want my network to be wireless so i bought a d-link wireless card for the desktop, the system then discover the wireless network but could not connect it kept on trying to authenticate, it did not even ask me for the web security key, what do I do
I am trying to setup a VPN with AnyConnect on my ASA5510 and it works fine. I have setup an AAA server group for my Active Directory with the "NT Domain" protocol". Right now, every user is able to connect with their Active Directory credentials. I would like to restrict access to the Anyconnect VPN to only a few users in AD.
I have acs 4.2 for windows installed on a windows server 2003 box, because of a merger I need to now authenticate against 2 different domains, there is a bidirectional trust between the two domains and the dial-in permission has been set in ADUC but whenever I try to authenticate a user it says dial-in permissions needed in the acs failed authentication log.
I'm installing ACS4.2 in our lab domain and want to leverage the corporate domain for authentication. The one way trust is in place, but there is a facet that I'm not clear on in regards to the installation requirement.
I'd like to install ACS on a lab domain member server, but I'm not sure that will work. The installation docs seem to imply that a member server must be in the same domain as the authentication server, but its not very clear. if I want to use the one way trust to the Corporate Domain, am I required to install ACS on the domain controller of the Lab Domain?
Two computers on the home network:Dell desktop running Vista (computer name PJ) is wired to a Belkin routerThinkPad laptop running Win7 (computer name ThinkPad) connected wirelessly to routerThe desktop (PJ) can see the laptop (ThinkPad) and access it's shares.On the laptop the desktop name (PJ) shows up under NETWORK but clicking on the computer name shows: "Windows cannot access \PJ"I have turned off Windows Firewall and AVG anti-virus on PJ but CANNOT ping PJ from ThinkPad[CODE]
I have a PPTP VPN setup in RRAS on Windows SBS 2008.
The VPN seems to works fine, I can ping everything on the other end of the tunnel. RDP into workstations, access shares on the workstations. I can telnet into the exchange server and send mail. Get the default IIS page at http://server.
From the SBS I could even map shares I have on my local workstations, but when I try to access any of the shares on the server over the VPN using hostname or IP it fails, "The network path was not found".
Not really sure whats going on here, I've shut the firewall off without success. I reconfigured the VPN from scratch and rebooted the server and it didn't change a thing. I'm unsure how long this has been like this since no one uses the VPN to access file shares on the server. The few that use it just RDP into their workstations, no issue there. Though recently they started replacing a few desktops with laptops and they have nothing to RDP into, they only need access to a few spreadsheets while at home or on the road so I thought the VPN would work, I guess not..
I reset the wap610N,after establishing connection, my iphone see my network domain but does not connect. I heard of dual band setting,how do i go about that. What must i do to establish connection with the iphone.
I work in a manufacturing firm where we have offices at 3 different places say A,B and C. Our ERP server is at our original unit A from where we accessed it at B and C through remote desktop application till now. But now we have hired cloud services to connect to our main ERP server. We are in the process of installing the cloud application on our server at B during which we are encountering a problem. The cloud service provider is asking for domain name and password for the DSCP server based at the orignal unit (A) which no one in the company seems to have any idea about. Our IT guy at A has resigned and has not been replaced. Our IT guy at B is inexperienced and just following the instructions of service provider who is stuck at DSCP domain name and ID. How can I know the domain name and password of DSCP server so that the process moves on?
