New to Samba, RH8. Searched for an answer but without joy.
I have set up a lone Linux machine with Samba on a Windows
2K network. I can log in from Windows -> Linux. I can also
login into Windows resources from Linux when I use the
command: smbclient //hostname/sharename -U username
However, when I use Gnome Nautilus and the 'smb:' command,
I can see the workgroup, enter and see the Windows server
in the workgroup but when I open the server to locate the
share I get ¨Couldnt Find \\hosename\sharename please check
the spelling and try again¨
Another question - are there any better ways of allowing a
user access to a WinNT share than having to allow the
Windows Guest user browse rights to the share?
