  • FreeNas users?

    Hi folks.. Any FreeNAS users out there? I am unable to remotely log into my FreeNAS server using the WebControl panel created user/groups etc (CIFS). I can get in with the Admin account.. but non of the others. Here is the LOG error I get:
    lighttpd[862]: (http_auth.c.854) get_password failed

    I also have the same type issue with FreeNas FTP.. I can get in anaonymously..but as soon as I try to use a login/password it all goes sound and no connection.

    Any Ideas? Is therer something on the Terminal/Console end I should have done to configure the accounts?

    Thanks!

    What version of FreeNAS are you running? Have you configured any of the external authentication sources (such as LDAP) that could be getting in the way of the local authentication?

    There shouldn't be anything you need to do to configure those accounts other than what is available in the web control panel.

        I'll take a look tonight when I get home and see what's set up on mine. I'll be able to give you a more intelligent response than trying to do it from memory.

          Apo,
          I think I have an Idea what is wrong.. .I have no idea what I am doing!! ;-)
          I was trying to access the share via a web browser..but I cannot do that because of the Webgui.. Right? (A (Plus other reasons probably).. So for a Remote share, I tried using a UNC ( \\111.11.111.33\STORAGE ) in the RUN Command but Windows doesn't see that share ...
          So generally am I way off base or syntax or what?
          But Basically I want to be able to have users hit my SHARE with Account control over the internet.

          Thanks

            Well, that should actually work. Provided that 111.11.111.33 is the actual IP for your FreeNAS box. I'm assuming you set up "storage" as a CIFS share under Services?

              I can't reproduce that problem at all. My users/groups all work fine. New users can FTP in without any issues as well as hit the web interface. I'm wondering if something might have gotten corrupted with your install?

                I thought that was it... Storage is the name of my Mount Point and SHARE name.. but It wasn't listed in the Shares Tab (Just - Documents, Utilities , which are two different Folders in the MAIN share (Named Storage). SO I tried to UNC to both with negative results..
                I added Storage as a share under storage..but no go also.

                On a positive note... I am able to FTP in.. but only on ADMIN account.. others basically want a HOME folder specified .. not sure where that setting is...

                heh..I'm still working on it tho..!
                thanks for your help..

                  When you created your mount points, what did you use for partition type and filesystem? I would highly recommend EFI GPT for the partition type if you're mounting physical drives and UFS for the filesystem.

                  As for home folders. I don't believe that you can set a home directory for a user account. When a user FTPs in, they will just see the root of the shared filesystem and won't actually have their own /home/user directory. I'm not sure if that's something you could manually edit, but I don't think its supported by default.

                    It's really complete, and stable.

                      I looked at OpenFiler but it didn't appear to have UPNP capabilities. I use the UPNP functionality of FreeNAS with my Xbox 360 and PS3 quite extensively.

                        Peardog,

                        I had an older version of FreeNAS installed. I just did a remote upgrade to the firmware to the newer version so now I can re-attempt the user controls and see if I get any errors.

                            I am sure any issues with FreeNAS on my end are my fault or my setups.. It install lied a dream.. I am just a newbie when it comes to NAS...

                            Thanks for the tip Gun...

                              Yep.. I tried the old NTFS and it errored out..tried the Fat 32..but no luck either..so I went with what the Documentation stated and it was the UFS and the EFI GPT (which I have never heard of..being allergic to UNIX..) ;-)

                              It seems with the FTP account it allows me to log in as a standard user, but seeing there is no HOME FOLDER it kicks me out. I may have to add users manually to the distro/HD install to allow this type of access??
