Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 436623
kernel update to 184.108.40.206-12.fc8 broke smb browse in nautilus
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:32:09 EST
Description of problem:
Nautilus in browse folder mode displays "Windows Network" icon but won't browse
it. If I change the address in the location from "smb:///" to smb://<hostname>
the browse works correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
smbd version 3.0.28-0.fc8
nmbd version 220.127.116.11.fc8
browse to "Windows Network" or enter "smb:///" in nautilus browser address bar
Steps to Reproduce:
(First, there must be at least one SMB host on the network)
1. Right click "Computer" icon, select "Browse Folder"
2. Double-click "Network" icon.
3. In displayed results, double-click "Windows Network"
Folder will be empty, because it doesn't find the SMB hosts.
Folder should show a list of SMB hosts on network
If you enter smb://<hostname> into the nautilus address, the shares on that host
are displayed correctly, and can be browsed. Only the smb:/// browse address
appears to be broken.
This is caused by firewall blocking port 445 (microsoft-ds). A predefined samba
rule is available in system-config-firewall.
Closing as NOTABUG, please feel free to reopen if problem persist with
completely disabled firewall. The smbtree utility can be useful when debugging.
