Description Forrest 2002-10-01 22:00:55 UTC

Description of problem:
When browsing the smb network with nautilus, I cannot ever open any windows
shares (including those that are on other Linux systems).  I can browse the smb
network, and choose a machine.  It asks for my username/passwd, and then it will
open the machine's directories.  If I try to double-click on any of the
directories, it gives an error:

You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "MyDirectory".

Mounting these directories manually through the command-line works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open a nautilus window
2.  Type in smb:// or smb://machine
3.  Try to open a share


Actual Results:  I get an error, and I cannot view anything in the folders.

Expected Results:  I should have been able to view/browse the shares.

Same problem here.
I can set up a server, seen and recognized by the Windows machines but I cannot
read the shares with Nautilus.


Comment 2 Alejandro Gonzalez Hernandez - Imoq 2002-10-17 20:02:44 UTC
I do have the same problem. I can browse the net via "smbclient" but not via
nautilus. If I access a share directly, it works (like smb://imoqland/share/).
