unable to acces password protected smb shares of win 2000
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:42:16 EST
Description of problem:
when I click on network servers and try to view the smb shares of a
win 2000 pc in the local network, I'm not asked for a password but get
the following error:
The folder contents could not be displayed
You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of
"Windows Network: Win2000pc"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to open password protected win 2000 smb share with nautilus
doesn't ask for password but displays an error
should ask for password and displays the shares available
not tested with Win XP or 9x shares, only with Win 2000 shares,
worked with fc1
Have you enabled the firewall on the linux box?
No firewall on the linux and the win2000 box.
This problem also occurs for WinXP.
I find that if I use the "File->Connect to Server" command, and give
the name of the specific share, I am prompted for a password and the
folder is accessible.
The opening of a shared folder works. But impossible to browse the
shared folder on a windows machine.
I have the very same problem here. I'am on a corporate network with
me being the onlyone running linux (FC3) and I can't browse smb
shares. This is an odd regression for me because I used to have MDK
9.0 with Garnome 2.3.4 (yes, a devel release) and it used to work fine.
Is there a way to gather meaningful information of this problem? I
have firewall and SELinux disabled.
