Nautilus unstable when mounting a samba share


I tried to mount a samba share located on a Windows box, from a CentOS box. Here's what I type:

Code:
smbmount \\\\192.168.0.2\\tmp /mnt/servidor -o defauts,rw,uid=500
When I try browsing it in Nautilus, Nautilus freezes a lot. It takes like 30 seconds to display the files also. I am able to create a new file, but unable to remove it. All files are marked with a red circle as "Unwritable". When trying to remove a file/folder that I created, I get:

Quote:
Error while moving items to "/mnt/servidor/.Trash-charles".
You do not have permissions to write to this folder.
This happens on 3 different computers....
This Samba share is accessible from other Windows computers and from a FreeBSD workstation as well. I only have this issue on CentOS.

What could be causing this?

Thank you, what password should I put? (I have no password for Windows shares). Without passwords, the content of the mounted directory is still read-only...

then you have to change something in smb.conf or with your unix permissions.
But I would check smb.con.

Which password?
If you created a samba User - smbpasswd -a testuser
then you'll be asked to give him a password.

For a Linux client accessing a Windows Share (on a Windows box), I need to edit the smb.conf file on my Linux box?

slap myself....
From Lin to Win uussh.
So but the mount command works but no write access. Cause you run cifs mount ntfs is pointless at this point.
mmh.
what shows smbclient -L 192.168.0.2 ?
Are you sure that you enabled simple file sharing in windows and checked the box everyone access?

It asks for a password, is it normal? Then I hit "Enter" and it gives me a list of my Windows shares:

Code:

What do you have in your /etc/samba/smb.conf [global] section?

And which machine has the 192.168.0.2 address? (the Samba server or the windows client?)

Minrich, I'm going to paste the whole file for you to have a look at

Code:
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) 
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors. 
#
#======================= Global Settings =====================================

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
   workgroup = MYGROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
   server string = Samba Server

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
;   hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.

so as I see Fiumis is what you can test.
So you still want to connect form linux using smb to windows?
Then mount -t cifs //192.168.0.2/Fiumis /mnt/win
but this share name wont work My Disc (D) change it to mydisc
And btw you 1st post said you try to mount a share called tmp on windows.
But with the output of smbclient -L 192.168.0.2 you showed us there is no windows share called tmp.
So useless...

Thanks! It's working great now
I have another problem now, but on a CentOS workstation accessing a FreeBSD file server through Samba. The CentOS workstation also has Windows on another partition. I can access these files from Windows but not from CentOS, actually I can see the list but I can't write to it. Here's the file server smb.conf file:

Code:
#


# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.

#
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed

security = share
passdb backend = tdbsam guest
guest account = mark
guest account = nobody

What is this? You use security share and then you use tdbsam for the accounts that are useless if you only have got this share. [Files]
Then you dedicated guest account = mark and within the share you specify nobody.
Check this guest thing.
