1 + rawhide up until I installed test 2 over it.  When I click on the network
servers icon in the menu and when I type smb:/// in the nautilus address bar. I
get this message:
"Couldn't display "smb:///", because Nautilus cannot contact the SMB master browser.
Check that an SMB server is running in the local network."

contact the SMB master browser.

that is being shared

This sounds like a nautilus bug, so I'm reassigning it to the nautilus maintainer.  
Also, this bug will be far easier to reproduce if you attach a copy of your 
/etc/samba/smb.conf file for the machine running nautilus, and describe your 
Windows network topology (domain or workgroup, what oses (and Service Pack 
levels) you're running, etc. 

Comment 2 Dan 2003-09-29 19:06:13 UTC
I'm in a small home workgroup just the linux box plus a windows 2000 sp4 machine
that holds my backed up data for when I test these test releases.  As for the
/etc/samba/smb.conf file it should be what came as default as I had not modified
that file.  Perhaps the problem may be the name of the workgroup is not
matching, but as I said it worked before with redhat 9, test 1, and test 1 +
rawhide without modifing the /etc/samba/smb.conf file. Let me test that theory
out and I'll get back to you.

Comment 3 David Lawrence 2003-09-29 19:12:55 UTC
This can happen (and happens to me alot) if you have your firewall turned on or
not configured to pass smb traffic. Try doing as root "service iptables stop"
and then try to browse for shares. Let us know is this helps.


Comment 4 Dan 2003-09-29 19:19:05 UTC
ok I disabled the firewall and it works now.
One question what port does samba use so I can have my firewall enabled again?
