Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 88114
authentication issues with smb://
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:04:36 EST
Description of problem:
Nautilus is constantly asking for a username/password when working with
samba/smb shares. I am trying to browse a share on another Redhat 9.0 machine.
This happens wether I specify smb://username:password@host/share or just
Copying files this way also prompts for a password for each file.
This basically makes smb:// useless for working with smb/samba shares.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up nautilus.
2. enter smb://username:password@host/share (replacing them with real info) in
the Location: box.
3. Attempt to work with the files (copy them move them, etc)
Username/Password box repetedly opens up. Over and over again.
enter username/password once (or specify it on the Location: line)
