Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125336
Nautilus cannot browse windows networks.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
Using Nautilus, you can visit a samba share if you enter the URI
directly. For example: smb://server/share
But if you attempt to browse the network to reach the share, no
network shares appear. As a replacement for Microsoft Computers,
browsing the Windows Network shares is very important.
This has been documented in a review of Fedora Core 2 on eweek.com:
I would have thought this would have been reported already, but I did
not see it anywhere in Bugzilla.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Gnome 2.6, Nautilus.
Very reproducible, happens every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the Main Menu in Gnome.
2. Select Network Servers.
3. Open Windows Network.
4. No shares are visable here.
A list of the browseable windows networks, worgroups, domains or
computers is expected.
I consider this a very important bug to fix. Your consern may vary.
