browsing the LAN


is there a GUI tool in Linux like the one in Windows that I can just click on and view shared files on other computers. I got Samba up and running and can see my computer from other windows machines....can i in turn see what's being shared on those windows machines from my Linux box?

If you've installed Nautilus, you can type 'smb:' in the location bar and it should be exactly like Network Neighborhood.

There is a program called xSMBrowser you could try. I use it regularly on my network. it worked out of the box for me.

thanks, i was just about to post the question if there was something other than nautius, because it just wont load for me for some reason....not even in kde, it just sits there like it's waiting for me to do something.

I want just trying to come up with the easiest solution, i.e. without even having to install other software, but it sounds like you've got some other issues, though!

nautilus ended up working as well as xsmbrowser, but nautilis is so slow for some reason, it takes forever for it to come up and it kinda freezes. I kinda dont care because it's an X issue and i dont care about X stuff enough to fix the problems because im trying to get away from GUI stuff (but i still need the web browser, i refuse to use lynx for web browsing).

Lynx isn't so bad. I'm hoping that it will soon have ASCII-mode Macromedia Flash released for it soon.
