Folder contents canot be displayed - Samba, XP and FC3


On FC3 I've set up Samba to access my XP laptop. I've used smbmount to mount my xp shares and I can access the xp shares this way. When I use nautilus - I can open up the Windows Network, see my workgroup and my XP machine, but when I double click on the machine it throws me this error "Sorry, the folder contents could not be displayed. You do not have permissions to Windows network//Vimal". Has anyone encountered this problem

smb clients on linux machine uses YOUR login-name to access remote shares if your login name on linux_box doesn't match with login name on Win_laptop then Win will not let you in, that is called SECURITY!!! you shoul scan Win-box with login name "Guest" or with share owner login name

1) actually I had a user on the FC3 box with the same user name and password as my XP "administrator" user. Until yesterday it gave me the same "Folder could not be displayed. You do not have permissions ..." error.
2) Today , I double click the "Computer" icon, I get a window with "Windows Network" icon, when I double click this, I get an empty window (0 items)
3) However when I type smb://Xpmachine name/Share I'm prompted for user name, domain and password, and lets me in when I enter these.
4) 2) and 3) work the same no matter which FC3 username I use.


Looks like samba is fine but something's screwed up with nautilus.

Also I don't know what caused the change between yesterday and today. I did uncomment the "encrypt = yes" line today, but I think 2) and 3) happened even before I made this change.
