Samba Share Browsing Problems


Hi,

Ive setup a samba server on one of my PCs and shared one directory and added a couple of users to the samba shares. I can login and view the shares fine on my windows machine, but on my other linux pc, if i type in \\192.168.1.68 in Konqueror, it goes to smb://192.168.1.68/ and just displays a blank empty window, i dont get a login prompt either.

Any ideas on how i can get the linux(slac) pc to browse the shares? I have installed samba on it, but that made no difference.

Thanks for any help
Jack

thanks for that, when i do /sharename at the end i get the login prompt and it works fine. How can i make it so that the share names/directories will be visible in \\192.168.1.68 in case a user dosnt know the share name, i.e the shares will be displayed before a login is required.

Ok ive got that all fixed and working now. is there any reason why i shoudnt be able to drag a file off \\192.168.1.68\share (mp3) and drop it in amarok or vlc and get it to play? I can copy/write files to the share fine but i cant play stuff stright off the network share, and if i copy them to the desktop first then drop them in the player, they play fine.

i suggest u mount network drive to ur workstation work this way for me no need to copy the movie/mp3 to ur workstation, here is the simple way

# mkdir /export/mnt/smbservername
# mount -t smbfs //server_ip/username /export/mnt/servername


enter userpass as required and after that u can brows ur system at /export/mnt/smbservername

this is exampe u can do with ur own way its up to u when u want to mount the network drive
