Nautilus File Browser in fedora


Hi all..

I am using fedora 11, I am facing a problem while accessing windows share through nautilus..

Initially while accessing the windows share through nautilus, I clicked on remember password.

Now I need to access the same windows share with another username having different access previliges on the share. But when I click on the shared folder it takes the password that I have previously saved. Its not prompting for new username and password..

Can anyone help me with this...

Thanks in advance...

Yeah well you told it to remember the settings for that share so it did

Delete the settings and start a new one. You could also log in as a different user and open it from there.

I figure you have something like regular user access, which you configured with the gui, and you also have an elevated status access. The second may be more powerfully accessed through the commandline.

either use smbclient or
Code:
mount -t cifs //Windows_IP/share_name  target_folder_path -o username=user,password=pwd

You have already reported:

- I just guessed this was sort-of a regular sort of access and the other one you want, with different user and access, is more advanced in some way. Perhaps I was just outsmarting myself.

Anyway: Once you have mounted the share via CLI, you can browse to it in the gui like anything else. If that is happy for you, you can even make a desktop launcher to run the command for you.

Clearing nautilus history is not going to do anything - IIRC: the settings are part of your smbclient configuration but its been too long since I had to do this by hand. I would not normally set up a system where one user had two accounts like this.

Thanks for your sincere help simon.

Hope I have not conveyed my problem properly. I will put it this way..

Initially I had browsed the samba share with the user testread, who has only read access. At this point I ticked the option remember password in the dialog box while entering username testread and password.

But now I want to access the same samba share with user testwrite, who has both read and write access to the share. Now password dialog box is not popping up. It is taking testread username as granted and the share is getting mounted over ~/.gvfs.

Where this password is stored after ticking remember password option ? If I can clear it, I hope this issue can be resolved.

Awaiting for reply...

Yep, that's what I thought.

I was suggesting that you mount the share from CLI and browse to it in nautilus. What is wrong with that?

The password is stored on the gnome keyring.
