    fc3 problem connecting to a w2k server


    Dear all

    First of all i am using FC3. I can see the server i want to conect i can ping the server i want to connect i can do pretty much everything BUT when i go to Applications->Network servers i can see all the computers in my network when i double click on pc_server (w2k server) it gives me the following error message:

    The folder contents could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "windows network: pc_server"

    i have noticed also that in the window before on the very top displays windows network: pc_server on pc_server. My win login is chva so i believe that if somehow make it say chva on pc_server we are on the right way . I believe that it might have something to do with my smb.conf file or maybe not. Any suggestions please.

    I am logging in as root in my fc3. Thank you in advance for your help.

    fc3 accessing windows shares

    I was looking for an answer to this for days. I had RH8, and RH WS and no problems installed FC3 my windows shares weren't accessible anymore.
    Answer or at least a way around going through Network icon. Open File browser in location bar type smb://server/sharename you will get prompet for username, domain and password.
    Hope it works for you too.

    FC3 is a big gain to becoming competative to Windows. The inclusion of Firefox that automatically downloads and installed plug-ins, and the exchange connector in Evolution is it greatest assest.
