    Difficuties reading a windows directory from linux


    Hi,

    I'm making a windows directory sharable by other computers on my home network. However, when I browse with

    smb://Fred@192.168.0.163/Pictures

    (using either konqueror or Firefox) I only see the first 34 of about 600 pictures in this directory. Why can't I access the rest of the files, and how do I coerce samba/windows/whatever to do it?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    cheers,
    Al (AussieGuy)

    You could try mounting the share using 'mount -t smbfs' or 'mount.cifs' and then accessing it with file:///...

    Thanks very much!

    I ended up getting it to mount fine using 'mount -t smbfs', but what I had to do was not mount the windows directory, but the name of this shared directory I had given it in the windows network settings.
