Thumbs down Nautilus Problem


Couldn't display "smb:///", because Nautilus cannot contact
the SMB master browser.
Check that an SMB server is running in the local network.

The above error is what I get when I attempt to use Nautilus to view the Network. I have an All Linux Server Network and a mixture of windows xp, 98 and 2000 for desktops.

Can you mount and view the shares from the command? This way we can tell if its a problem with samba running or just nautilus.

samba seems to be working, I don't have any errors in my samba logs at all.

Solution for same problem in Fedora

I recently installed Fedora and encountered the same problem when attempting to view my smb network servers in Nautilus. I discovered that my network card was not selected as a trusted device in my security level configuration. As soon as I made it a trusted device the problem was resolved.

Hope this helps anyone that encounters the same problem.

jhawkins... is correct.

If you are having the following error

"Couldn't display "smb:///", because Nautilus cannot contact
the SMB master browser. "

please check your security setting. Your network adapters need to be checked as trusted devices.

I keep making this mistake over and over myself. If I could find a way to carve this into my brain I would probably do so.

eth0 not checked as trusted device. That was the problem. About the easiest fix I've ever experienced in my Linux foray.

Thanks.
