RHEL 3 WS & Windows 2003 Svr Problems

I also posted this question in the Redhat forums, but wasn't sure if it should be here too.

hello all!

I am in the begining stages of implementing a 10 user lan running RHEL 3 WS, and a single RHEL 3 WS box for file and print sharing. There is also an existing Win2K3 running AD and file services on the lan. The users were hoping to have browsing capabilities on their domain (similar to network neighborhood). When I open Nautilus and type "smb:///" in the adress bar I can see the domain, and then when I click on the domain I can see the workstations. However, I then get prompted for a username and password. I have tried everythin from "domain\username", "username@domain", "" and nothing works!

So to sum it up, what am I doing wrong? I woul really prefer not to have to use linneighborhood, or SmbBrowse.

Lastly, I also would like to know the best wat to go about permanently mounting shares from the windows file server with full read wrtie access on the workstations. I tried a few mount -t smbfs commands and had no luck either.

boy things sure do change if you get out of the linux game for a few

Thanks in Advance!

Have you checked to see if there is anything in the log that will indicate what your problem is? Could be something like an encyption handshake failure, or something of the sort, for one thing. However, I think that there is more that will have to be done to discover what the problem is.

I can tell you, however, that FC1 and RHAS2.1 will both integrate will W2k3 in native mode, once you patch an encryption handshake problem.
