how can I access files on window$ from linux

Hi all,
I got samba running , I am runing red hat 8 ( very nice version)
I am able to see the linux box from window$ I can access the sharing on linux form windows, but no from linux to windows

if I open nautilus and type on the address bar


a pop authentications comes out asking user name and password
I type a valis windows local user name y password ( that is the same on linux
after that I amble to see the sharings, if I want to open the file I got this mesages

You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "the-share name on the windows box "

so , I loging in the linux box the same password and user name as in the windows box.

does any body nkows how to fix this issue.

Do you have the Windows-end sharing setup as sharelevel or is it password protected? I've had this problem a few times because the Windows end wasn't setup to use passwords, and simply not putting anything in the boxes and clicking 'ok' worked fine.
