Hi, every month my internet provider has a downtime & my internet don’t work for 2 or more days at that moment of time all my Terminals & printers gets disconnected and cannot run access database. so can anyone tell me how to configure samba without internet. i’ll give brief info about my network.
SERVER PC - CONNECTED TO TP-LINK ROUTER VIA ETHERNET.
A ETHERNET CABLE CONNECTED TO DLINK SWITCH FROM MY TP LINK ROUTER.
OTHER 4 TERMINALS CONNECTED INTO A DLINK 16 PORT SWITCH.
3 EPSON TM T82 PRINTER CONNECTED INTO DLINK 16 PORT SWITCH.
FIREWALL STATUS IS OFF.
HOME GROUP WINDOWS 10 & 8 ARE JOINED
BUT WHEN INTERNET GOES OFF THEY TURNED INTO PUBLIC NETWORK INSTEAD OF PRIVATE NETWORK.
I’VE TRIED GIVING MANUAL IP ADDRESS TO EACH SERVER & OTHER TERMINAL BUT STILL DOESN’T WORK.
CAN ANY ONE TELL ME STEP BY STEP PROCEDURE TO CONNECT SAMBA WITH PROPER NETWORKING?
DO I NEED TO CHANGE SQL CONNECTION SETTING?
DOES FIREWALL NEEDS TO BE ON WHEN GIVING MANUAL IP TO EVERY COMPUTER?
So this is not a SambaPOS issue. Your network is setup wrong if it doesnt work when the internet goes out. Are you talking about the internet or your network? Those are 2 different things. SambaPOS does not require an internet connection to work but your internal network not functioning when your internet goes down is a mistake on your part configuring your network.
More than likely your router is causing the issue.
your right it will be probably be the router as some don’t function if there isn’t a functioning internet connection thats why i proposed that he connects the server pc directly to his dlink switch port that should fix his problem
I’VE TRIED CONNECTING ALL MY SERVER PC & TERMINALS BUT STILL CANNOT CONNECT, AS IT SHOWS A YELLOW ! MARK & SAYS NO INTERNET ACCESS.
ALSO IN NETWORK ALL PC ARE NOT VISIBLE ALTHOUGH THEY ARE IN SAME HOMEGROUP.
SAMBA SAYS CANNOT CONNECT TO DATABASE.
WHAT U THINK WHEN WE MANUALLY ASSIGN IP ADDRESS FIREWALL SHOULD BE OFF OR ON?
Yes Kendash, thats what i think too but when i removed the router & just attached all the server & pc still cannot connect. i know my network setup is wrong so can u suggest what will be the best way to connect all pc and server and configure them so this never happens
dont know exactly how to call his conection (thats why i said rdp) but what i meant is that if he uses server to connect multiple systems he needs to turn off firewall and all he needs for his setup is explained very wel in the pdf file that is in the link
WILL TRY AGAIN AND GET BACK TO YOU GUYS & I’M NOT USING RDP
I’M SIMPLY CONNECTING MY SERVER & TERMINALS VIA ROUTER & SWITCH.
NOW WILL AGAIN CONNECT THE SERVER PC & TERMINALS PC WITH SWITCH ONLY AND ASSIGN MANUAL IP & TURNING FIREWALL OFF.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP HOPE IT GETS SORTED TODAY…
I might just add my 2 cents in this long dead post.
I also has problems with my Sambapos Server not working if the server realized the network had no internet, it boggled my mind.
My setup is configured right… Sambapos Server running on a Windows server 2012 PC connected to all other PC’s. I tried everything, it just didn’t make sense.
Then my fix was to unplug the router that didn’t supply internet and left the network as is and after a restart of the Server all was well and all pc’s could see each other again (has restarted many many times before).
Now if this was the fix or one of the other thousand things I tried that was the winner I couldn’t tell you, but it worth a remember.
Yesterday we loosed network for few hours , and samba freezes if not used few minutes ? and when try to take orders need to wait 2 minutes giving message of not responsive close or wait . Is this normal behavior suspect that it may check license all time ? what if no internet ? How to fast offline usage .
