Hi all,

I am trying to access a filesystem shared by the Totalnet Advanced
Server (TAS) on a Solaris box from a Fedora Core 3 machine.  I am using
the following version of a samba client:


Even though I have read permissions of a file stored on this filesystem,
I can't read it.  The only way to access these files are to give myself
both read and write permissions.  See below.  How can I debug this
further?  I have no problems accessing these files from a windows xp
client or an os x client. Thank you very much.
