In gnome I went to connect to a custom server. I typed in the IP address and hit enter. This created an Icon but nothing else, I was successful in connecting when I connected to a windows share. The problem is that now in the "Places" menu and in the desktop I have to Icons, one is the working smb and the other does nothing at all, when I right click it gives me no options in the drop down menu.
