This guide is exactly what I was looking for, but I am having an issue.
Everything seems to work fine, the mount point contains the workgroups, which in turn contains the servers, and the shares (ie. "/media/network/WORKGROUP/DANGERMOUSE/MUSIC (M)" exists) and I can browse this structure to that point, but as soon as I try to open the share (MUSIC in the above example) I get a dialog box saying
from Thunar, or from the command line
Failed to open directory "MUSIC"
Connection timed out.
This is only a problem when accessing shares on the windows box in the network, accessing my local (samba) shares through this works perfectly. I'm 99.9% sure the windows shares aren't password protected (and it doesn't sound like a permissions problem anyway, but I could be wrong).
$ ls /media/network/WORKGROUP/DANGERMOUSE/MUSIC\ \(M\)/
ls: /media/network/WORKGROUP/DANGERMOUSE/MUSIC (M)/: Connection timed out
I've searched but can't seem to find anything useful. Has anyone else run into this, and found a cause and/or solution?
Note: I am actually using Ubuntu 6.10, not Xubuntu, but I use XFCE as my desktop. Not sure if this has any impact.
