Question network share files don't show

I got samba set up and the shares on my windows machine are showing and the shares on mandrake are showing. I have LiSa
setup so I can browse my network, but when I use Konquer to access windows share directories none of the files in the directories are showing up. What can I do to fix this?

Can you post your Samba configuration file.

Located at /etc/samba/smb.conf

I came across the same problem when I tried to setup my
networking environment (a mixture of windows and linux boxes
as you). I first tried Lisa, the same result!, only shares but no files were shown.

For the sake of simplicity, just leave Lisa and use LinNeighborhood
instead!. It'´s a nice utility that get installed when you install Mandrake 9.1. You can find it in the following menu :
K Menu/Network/ Remote Access.

Provided that all your boxes share the same workgroup, you will see in a Windows´s neighborhood-like screen, all your actives boxes. You can double-click on any PC shown and see all its shares. Even more, you will be able to mount and unmount any share (you will be asked where to mount a selected share).

Should you have any doubt with this utility or with mounting or unmounting, don´t hesitate and write me back!

Hope this helps
