    only thing i can think of is firewall.

    humm ... i thought netbios support was included in xp by default, but perhaps not. try this: http://www.chicagotech.net/netbios&w...I%20on%20WinXP

    regarding installing netbeui in windows. you might check your network settings first to see if netbeui is installed or not first though.

    Disabled the firewall, and got this in smbtree

    STARHOUSE
    \\ROB
    \\ROB\BJC-7000 BJC-7000
    \\ROB\BJC-7004 printer
    \\ROB\ADMIN$ IPC Service ()
    \\ROB\IPC$ IPC Service ()
    \\ROB\MyFiles
    \\ROB\print$

    Don't want to leave off Firestarter for long.

    well ... if you have a router (which you should since you're able to connect two computers to eachother), your router should be configured as a firewall, and you shouldn't need firestarter anyway.

    if you insist on running firestarter, you can open the samba port under the policy tab, or simply allow connections for everything in your local network (assuming you trust all computers connected to your network).

    to configure your ubuntu computer to allow your windows machine to access it, you'll need to set up a samba server (first link in my sig).

    dmizer,

    I was wondering if you know what finally worked for narky, I have the ds-101j and have the exact same problem. I am able to mount and see the space available on my NAS but it is not listing the files.

    Tried to figure out what exactly worked in the end but haven't been able to yet.

    P.S. I am fairly new to linux but I'm loving it and will try anything!

    i frankly have no idea. but since it was displaying the free space correctly, i suspect that it was a permissions problem. you might try changing the mounted folder permissions to 777 on ubuntu. for example:
    Code:
    sudo chmod 777 /mount/sharename
    where "sharename" is the name you've given the folder where you want to mount the shares.

    also, it would seem that narky was successful in mounting it manually rather than through fstab, so i suggest working that way first before you attempt to enter the mount in fstab.

    beyond that, everything we discussed about making it work appears in this thread.

    you might also consider sending narky a pm, because there may have been something done which was not posted here.

    appreciate the reply, gave that a shot and to no avail. I have been mounting it manually it seems to be easier for testing . I did pm narky but he was last active 4 weeks ago, any chance you have his email address?

    thanks again for the info!

    WOW! It works, I guess it took a few minutes to populate the folder.....I don't know. All I do know is that it's finally working.

    Thanks to all your knowledge dizmer hope I can repay some how some day

    Too bad theres no way to send a beer across the net yet!

    Cheers
