Only Some Windows Shares visible from Linux
 
Ok, so I have tried gnomba, nautilus, jags, smb4k, LinNeighbourHood, xsmbrowser, smbtree....

...but I simply can see all the resources on our LAN.

The situation is thus....

Our Information Services have a very large LAN full of literally hundreds of windows PCs and a quite a few network drives.

When I use my Win2K "network neighbourhood" I can see all the shares.

When I use my Debian or my Ubuntu 6.06 box I can only see a few.

I know the IP address of the Windows domain controller and I tried putting that in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file under wins server.

Still no go.

Any suggestions?

Have you considered joining the Ubuntu or Debian boxes to the Active Directory Network?

Umm, err, wots an Active Directory Network and how do you join something to it?

I suspect the answer if RTFM, but alas, I don't know where The FM for such thing is so, despite being most willing, I haven't been able to R it.

The domain controller should have a domain logon associated with it for the windows computers. You can add linux machines to a domain with Samba.

Kind of dated, but if you have a domain setup, this should be a good start for a FM :D
