So i managed to set up samba so that i could access my own computer on the network. (And other windows computers see mine).

The only problem is that i cannot browse (although i see them !) other windows machines on the network. I am prompted for a username and password when i double click any other computer. The other computers are not password protected and file sharing is enabled.

So are there any ways to fix this?

I am also having problems actually connecting to Samba shares on the network, even though the Windows machines can connect fine.

Have you set your user passwd for samba:


sudo smbpasswd -L -a <username>

and enable the user


sudo smbpasswd -L -e <username>

Yes, I have.
I can access by IP, but not hostname.

I can access by smb://ipnumber/shre in Nautilus, and I can access by mounting as an smbfs by ip and hostname, but I can't access by hostname or by clickingon the icons in Nautilus.

I have installed Jaunty. Nautilus/Samba/Network seems to be running "properly".
