I am currently using Slackware 10.0
I am on a lan that has both Windows as well as Linux boxes. I have configured the lisa daemon properly. I open up konqueror and click on the lan browser button. It shows me all the p.c.'s When I click on some windows p.c. I get a folder called SMB. Now that's fine, but the problem is that when I click on the folder it sometimes
asks for a user name and password even though the windows user has just shared the folder over the network and hasn't set any password. The wierd thing is that it only sometimes
asks for a user-name/password and on other times it won't. Also. when it asks for one, it does'nt accept any username/password.
One more thing, sometimes
the folder opens, and I can see the shares. If I click on one sometimes
(I hate this word) it opens up and sometimes
it asks for a password. If I click on CANCEL it says access denied. But there's a workaround. When it asks for a password I click the back button (on konqueror) then click OK without any username/password, and then again open the shared folder. This time it opens up fine!
I know this sounds kinda silly, but it's been very irritating. One thing that I would like to mention here is that I have not setup my samba.conf file. Infact there is no /etc/samba/samba.conf but if that is causing the trouble why is it that sometimes
(and for some p.c.'s) it works out fine and one others it doesn't. ?
Thanks in anticipation.
