@With the latest 3.0.2pre binary release I'm actually able to browse the

I'm having the same problem, 
Using 3.0.2pre but no joy,

Getting promted for user name and password when trying to access machine 
via hostname.
Works fine with IP address.

Checked that NTLM authentication works but no matter what I try, (been 
trying for weeks)
the Kerberos tickets always fail.

All tests to check whether things are working goes through though 
following are commands that do work.

wbinfo -u
wbinfo -g
getent passwd
getent group

smbclient //server/share -k

Any Ideas ?
