Here at our institution, we have a windows server that has a share, and
I am able to access this share both from Mac and Windows:
but somehow I cannot (or more precisely, dont know how to) access it
from my linux box. For example, on an Ubuntu box, from Places -> Connect
to Server... -> Connect to Server box, I chose Service type: Custom
Location, then cifs://host.domain.com/share_directory, then I got error:
Cannot Connect to Server. You must enter a name for the server.
If I chose Service type: Windows share, Server: host.domain.com and then
Share: share_directory, and then my username, hit Connect, then I was
repeadly asked for password, even I knew that I typed my password
Anybody knows what I was doing wrong?
Thank you so much,
