    Hardy SMB problem

    I can't connect to a SAMBA share using the connect to server wizard, it just gives the error

    “Can't display location "smb://192.168.1.1/" No application is registered as handling this file”

    This is a problem in 8.04 it wasn't a problem in earlier versions and seems to be a reported bug anyone know a work round?

    192.168.1.1 normally is a router's ip.. but if you are sure its a pc ip. then firstly ensure that you are able to ping 192.168.1.1

    No it's the PC I can ping in fact I can Ftp into the box which is the work round I'm using - for some reason with 8.04 you cant connect to a SMB share with user level security. This was no problem with 7.10

    Same problem.

    Bugs the hell out of me because I cannot use the network printer since Samba does not work at all.

    Any solutions yet?

    What if you do smb://your-server/your-share-name

    And do this in the Nautilus address bar, not the wizard

    I'm not sure how related my problem is. I just installed Samba and created a share that appears to be configured correctly. When connecting from a Windows PC it appeared to get past authentication and then it would say it couldn't connect.

    I tried the smb://server/share from the server and it said it couldn't mount the Windows shawn.
