I can only imagine this is an FAQ, but it is not in wiki, wiki's faq or
general samba documentation (the paragraph I read anyway!).
I am looking for a way to make it easy for users to connect to their WWW
storage SMB shares. I can create a "smb://user@host/share" style URI in
a WWW page or email for OsX and Linux users. It will ask for password,
and just work.
But with Windows, I can not get smb:// to work. Is there a good way to
include the username, hostname and share name for Windows users so it
will just ask for their password, then open their shared area? Even if I
have to create a .BAT file I guess.
\\host\share and file://host/share don't seem to work, and has nowhere
for the username part to be included.
There is no Windows Login going on.
