I am brand new to linux. I installed FC3 on one of my home computers and would like to get networking enabled. Samba is installed and running on the machine and I can see the windows workgroup called "Peck Home" when I click computer>network>Windows Network, I can see the computers that are part of the workgroup, "Mary" and "Orpheus". However when I click on the computer to see the windows share directories I get the following error message.
Cannot open MARY
The filename "MARY" indicates that this file is of type "desktop configuration file". The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type "x-directory/smb-share". If you open this file, the file might present a security risk to your system.
Do not open the file unless you created the file yourself, or received the file from a trusted source. To open the file, rename the file to the correct extension for "x-directory/smb-share", then open the file normally. Alternatively, use the Open With menu to choose a specific application for the file.
Is there something I need to do to make these computers accessible?
I have also tried hitting the computer from firefox by entering
and nothing happens
Any help would be appreciated.
