Description of problem:
When I want to see my Windows network shares I get a "Can't display location" popup with the message "Couldn't display smb:///". Samba mount worked with gnome version 2.10 and samba mount from command line also works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Places->Computer with nautilus
2. Select Network
3. Select Windows Network
Actual Results: "Can't display location" popup with "Couldn't display smb:///" message.
Expected Results: List of computers in the network.
(all gnome version numbers 2.12.0-1 from development repository)
You need to have iptables disabled now in order for samba browsing to work
The service iptables is stopped. Browsing only fails for location "smb:///" but
it works if you directly enter "smb://hostname/share_name".
Mario, please attach your /etc/samba/smb.conf
Alex, here's another smb.conf from bug #110674 which appears to be the same as this
The firewall issue might finally be fixed soon, see bug 113918

samba config file
Here is the smb.conf from the server. I know, it is a SuSE installation. But it
is not browseable from my fedora machine. All Windows machines can browse the
network, and I can browse it with Xffm file manager. I have the same behaviour
with my fedora machine in another network (also SuSE samba server).
Do you still see this in FC5?
No, works fine now.
