I have a home network comprising 3 computers each connected via an ADSL Router.

The network is working fine in that I am able to see and access files from any one computer to each of the other.

Clicking on Network Servers in the redhat linux system diplsays all of the computers on the network.

I am able to access windows files from Linux

However if I click on LocalHost I get the following error message

Couldn't display "smb://localhost" because the attempt to login failed

Can anyone tell me why I am getting this error message

Are you not running the Samba server on your host (localhost)?

# service smb status

To get it to start at boot time:

# chkconfig smb on

To get it to start NOW:

# service smb restart
