    Help me troubleshoot samba

    Hi

    I have 3 pc's on home network. All dual boot Windows and Ubuntu. All have Samba installed, plus personal file sharing.

    When all 3 are booted into linux, all 3 show the public folders on all 3 pc's, but only 2 can access the other pc's folders.

    I can't find any difference between the systems to explain why one pc (10.04) cannot mount either of the other two public folders:

    Unable to mount location. DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

    even though their icons are shown in 'network'.

    The public folder on the troublesome pc can be accessed from the other two (10.04 & 10.10).

    Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks

    Have you tried accessing the shares from command line of troublesome PC ?
    Code:
    # List the shares
    smbclient -L <other-server-ip> -U<username>%<passwd>
    
    # Access any share
    smbclient //<other-server-ip>/<share-name> -U<username>%<passwd>
    Also might want to check firewalls on that PC
    When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth !!

    Thank you. I'm sorry this is a duplicate of the original thread - there were problems with the server when I posted. I'll close this.
