Samba: Can't Access Win2000 Shares from Linux
I'm running Linux Fedora Core 2 with Samba 3.0.3-5 installed. It is connected to a LAN which has 2 Win98SE and 1 Win2k boxes.
From the command prompt, "smbclient -L hostname -U username" works for all Win boxes; however, "smbmount" gives me: "5717: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.) SMB connection failed" when I try to mount a file share on the Win2k box. "smbmount" works for the 2 Win98SE boxes. I can print from Linux to a shared printer on one of the Win98SE boxes.
In Gnome, when I click Computer->Network->Windows Network->Workgroup I can see the Windows boxes on my network. When I click on the icon for the Win2k box, I get an error box that says "The folder contents could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of the "Windows Network: ***"
From all of the Windows boxes I can access the Linux box. I can access the Win2k box from the Win98SE boxes.
Samba is configured to encrypt passwords, and "Guests" are authorized on the Win2k share.
Does anyone know what's going on here?
I have exaclty the same problem!!!
I can mount shares using the mount command and I can see all the servers and shares using smbclient -L servername.
All this works
Once i have mounted the shre using "mount" I can also brows using nautilus.
But when i try to brows the network things go wrong. I can see the workgroup and all the pc in it (DCD and all) its a wk2 ads domain by the way.
When I try to access a single pc i get this: You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "Windows Network: ghost". and thats it.
I can access the shares on my own linux box using smb:// but thats where it ends.
I am running fedora core 2 and have a windows 2k AD domain running. It worked fine with my old Fedora core 1 box.
Please any body help.

I think ths is a bug in Fedora Core 2
I reported this to bugzilla here:
And apparently, two other reports describing the same problem have been filed:
I think you should add your observations, as a comment, to one of the above bug reports. The fact that it worked under FC1 is significant.
Problem with Win2k, No Problem with Win98SE
Yes, I am having the same problems. The problem only appears when I try to browse the shares on a Win2K box. It works fine for the Win98SE machines.
Using smb://server/share is probably the best workaround (for accessing the shares) until this gets fixed. To browse the shares on a Win2k machine, use smbclient -L server.
