Need a graphical SAMBA client for RedHat 9


Does anyone know of a good graphical SAMBA client for RedHat 9? Konqueror has some basic SAMBA abilities but it seems to work only intermittently, sometimes doesn't display shares or servers correctly or at all, there's just too many things wrong with it. And it won't remember my passwords.

I guess a dedicated SAMBA client would do a better job....if such a thing exists. Any suggestions?

why don't you just mount the SMB shares in a directory on ur filesystem?

# mount -t smbfs //<server>/<share> /<mountdir>

then u can use konqueror to browse through that directory.
if the share is always available (i.e. if it's a server on your home network) you can put it in ur fstab.

Yeah I suppose so. I just got used to Windoze' way of browsing the network for shares and I wondered if there was a similar way of doing it in linux.

just not very well, that's the problem. even when i turn all my firewalls off, it still doesn't show shares on the local machine if i browse to it (yet i can see them from my windows machine). odd.

you may be amused to learn that microsoft doesn't support their own network browsing software. if it goes a little buggy... they don't care. its just to much trouble for them to support it when a browse master war begins between various MS OS's... browse master wars can be a pain, but are generally easy to beat, however the solution is to time consuming for them to bother with.
