    i assume that by "just a blinking cursor" you mean that you are not getting returned to the prompt.

    what happens when you:
    Code:
    ping DELL-Ubuntu

    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    That's correct: no prompt, nothing appears on the desktop...

    When I ping DELL-Ubuntu, I get "64 bytes from [ip]" I assume that's a 'positive' response...
    "He who lives by the penguin, dies by the penguin."
    (at least 'till he figures out what he's doing!)

    yup ... positive response.

    have you rebooted or restarted samba since you made the changes to smb.conf?

    also, what happens if you open firefox and type:
    smb://DELL-Ubuntu/

    if you see a directory structure, what is listed there?

    Oh sure...several times...

    Could there be some kind of permission issue going on??

    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    if you go to:
    system > administration > networking and then click on the DNS tab, is your router listed at the top for your primary dns server?

    also, can you browse to smb://DELL-Ubuntu in firefox?

    Yes. [I'm using opendns in my router--would that effect anything?]

    No. I just get a little twirly icon on that tab for 30 seconds or so, then the home page opens on that tab.

    okay ... remove your router as your primary dns server. that should help things some. you should only see your internet provider's dns servers there.

    now try this from the amd box:
    Code:
    smbtree --user=yourdellusername[yourdellpassword]
    does your password contain any punctuation? specifically & or !

    Do you mean change the setting to DHCP? I don't have my isp's dns servers in there. (I did have opendns settings in the router (208.67.222.222).

    now try this from the amd box:
    Code:
    smbtree --user=yourdellusername[yourdellpassword]
    does your password contain any punctuation? specifically & or !
    No special characters in the password.

    Well, I changed the network settings, and it killed my internet connection. It DID seem to positively effect our smbtree stuff, though!

    Here's the output from the latest smbtree:

    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    lol ... so the trick is going to be to make your internet connection work as well as make your samba connection work huh?

    okay. well, i'm talking about dns servers, not ip addresses. in networking there should be a tab that says "dns" in the top window frame, it should list dns servers. these servers should only be from your internet service provider (or in your case ... open dns server addresses), not a part of your network. what settings did you change such that you were able to make smbtree work?

    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    Okay. I finally got it to work. I had to change the properties of my eth0 wired card to "DHCP", instead of the router address. I also had a mistake (in red) in my mount command:

    Code:
    sudo mount -t cifs //DELL-Ubuntu/DellFiles /media/MyFiles -o user=dellid,password=dellpswd,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777
    I've gained a connection to my Dell box; what have I lost? Anything? What will that change to my network settings do to my internet connection speed, etc?

    And, next, I'm gonna wanna know what I have to do to be able to browse a lot more of the Dell machine--not JUST that one folder!
