Samba internal error when trying to view Win network

Hello everyone,

I am getting rather frustrated with Samba and it's odd errors, on the Windows side all the Linux shares can be seen and accessed easily, however on the Linux side I cannot see the Windows network. When trying to view the Network Neighborhood through Konqueror using Samba I get the "Can't find parent item smb:/ in the tree. Internal Error." someone please help me out, I'm pretty stumped. :|

hi there I had this problem using fedora core 2, what systems are you running ?

I'm not sure which part of what I did solved the problem but this is what I did, copy the steps and let me know which part if any helps.

if you launch the kcontrol application (control centre) then go to "internet & networks" and then "local network browsing"
enter a default user (guest will do ), and a workgroup. apply the settings and give it a try!

Then i went off and updated samba to samba-3.0.4-1.0.2, then also get samba-client and samba-common is a good place to find rpm's for your system.

install them (rpm -Uhv samba*rpm)

and give it a try again

also there is a really nice program for mounting samba file systems called smb4k give it a try its good for streaming videos through samba

Doing this also solved the slow file transfer i had when mounting file systems through the command line.
