Hi there,

Can you give a bit more information on your problem. Is your samba file server up and running??? Can you access these files from a Linux box???

Cheers

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand. First, shouldn't it be?
Code:
smb://ip/
and second with the trailing "/" ip looks like a folder but the error message only makes sense if it were a file. What exactly did you do to get this message? How did you try to open the mounted folder?
cheers,
jdk
