I support a client who has a Windows 2000 Domain. To this network, I've added an Asterisk IP PBX server, which runs under CentOS. The client needs to be able to perform DOS level functions on the Asterisk server: Copy [filename]; Del [filename], etc. from his ancient PICK database system, which runs on a Win 2000 application server. The Vendor who sold us the pre-configured Asterisk system (whose support sucks!) installed Samba, which I believe was designed to give command line access to the Asterisk Server. However, whenever we attempt running a DOS command (dir \\192.168.0.5\autodialer), we are asked for a username and password. I can't think of any way to provide this as part of the command string. What to do? What to do?
Access Linux Server from Windows Domain(3 posts)
The answer is to properly configure Samba. I think you want anonymous access via Microsoft Windows Network to Linux server, and it is possible.
I cannot provide you detail instructions on what to do in your case (I'm away from my Linux system now), but here are some links that might be helpful:
In general, you have to play a little with /etc/samba/smb.conf on the Linux server (do it carefully, back the file up before changing) and test access from the client system.
