    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!

    Ok.. I give.. I saw the iSCSI listed but being a SCSI Phobe.. and thinking, I have no SCSI interface and drives so It must not be applicable.. What is it...

    I really havea selection of Co-Workers that are in remote locations that I want to be able to access my Drives, which Password/Account Control.. (they are not on my workgroup)....


    Thanks

    Okay. There's a new nightly build out for FreeNAS that fixed an error with uPNP, but it also fixes a couple other things.

    http://downloads.sourceforge.net/fre...4&big_mirror=0

    You can download that and use the web interface to upgrade.

    As far as your FTP woes. Can you give me a description of what the actual job is you're trying to accomplish with the FTP? Is it something that absolutely requires FTP or do you just want to create a place where people can have their own personal file storage that's accessible from remote places? IIf this is the case, are the users nly really going to access it from their home PCs? If so, iSCSI might be an alternative solution. It work very well. I have a 250GB iSCSI target that I mount from home but also have it available on my laptop when I travel so I can get access to that content from anywhere.

    No, it doesn't. Thats a good point, and if you use that feature, obviously it affects your choice. Openfiler, is however pretty good for that typical Netapp style workgroup filer type application. One of the more usable FOSS products I've seen, actually.

    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 file system 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.

    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??

    Sneakernet here I come...

    It's really complete, and stable.
    Oh Sure..I gotta go and download and try this too..!! I am getting the ISO as we speak..
    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...

    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 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..

    Locally ,on the same workgroup, I can access the Share with no issues.. (save and read files etc..)
    Rob
    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 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?
