    Can't connect to SAMBA share via Jaunty

    Hello, I've set up a SAMBA share on Ubuntu Server 8.10, with the security set to share and permissions opened up on the directory to allow all to read, write, execute.

    I have Windows machines that can all see the share, but only one of my two Jaunty laptops can connect to the server.

    I do this by Places -> Connect to Server -> Windows Share -> (enter server name, share name)

    This works on one, but the other is giving me a "can't connect" error. Both have the latest version of smbfs installed...what could be the problem?

    Thanks!

    does the faulty machine see the others at all? Can you ping a windows machine.

    I can ping both a windows machine and the Ubuntu Server from the faulty laptop, I just can't connect via SMB...

    I also get an error when I try to open networking, it says "Cound not display "network:///".

    Error: DBus error or.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply.

    There is a command line utility called 'smbtree' I am not sure if it is installed by default. Try it on the command line, it will list all visible Samba shares.

    Ok, I've run it, and it shows my server (//LION) on that list. Each computer on the list returned "cli_start_connection: failed to connect to COMPUTERNAME (0.0.0.0). Error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"

    On the "good" laptop everything is the same except this is returned for //LION:

    Server requested LANMAN password (share-level security) but 'client lanman auth' is disabled
    failed tcon_X with NT_STATUS_OK

    Try adding

    client lanman auth = Yes
    lanman auth = Yes
    to smb.conf
