Can't browse windows network

Hi there,

With F8 I could go to "Places"->"Network" and then browse into "Windows Network" and to a share on a computer. Now with F9 and what I've installed on it so far (which is minimal) I do the same thing but after clicking on "Windows Network" I see the prefix in the address bar change to "smb://" and I get a browser window with nothing in it.

I've tried installing smbclient and a few other things. From the command line (which I am NOT fluent with when it comes to smbclient) it seems like the something is visible as I do the following

[code]
smbclient -L server -U username
#asks for password
#password entered
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

What gives? I haven't had this kind of trouble with the previous versions of Fedora...has something changed?

Hello KKJensen-

I use smbclient to connect to a Windwos machine on my lan (my computer, her computer). Though I have never used the '-L servername option, I have good success specifying the computer name and sharename. The example below works when XP is running on the target machine. The '-N' option specifies to use no login name or password, which XP allows by default on it's shares, so there is no password prompt given. It just 'connects'.
Code:
smbclient //cortana2/Data -N
When W2K is the OS of the moment, the command changes to
Code:
smbclient //cortana/Data --user=administrator%password
Perhaps this will be of some help in getting a connection established to your windows shares, at least until a better solution using the Network Places is found. Good luck.

The problem result your system search by the dns yje name of the server.
For resolve the problem your dns must known the name of your domain controler. If you have the dns of your IFA , your name of your server is not known.
You must include in your network confirguration the name of the controler.
verify that you have a wins server and put in your smb.conf.
If you have not wins, your FC8 can be a wins server
read smb.conf
You can test to replace the name by ip adress then it resolve the share
you can put
smbclient -L server -U username%password
it 's better quick

The comandline suggestions seem to be getting through to some degree (I'm here as a consultant and I think the login they gave me has expired...the IT admin is looking into it.

For now if I get the following:
Code:
[kris@biggirl ~]$ smbclient //server/DESIGN -N
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[HOMESERVER] OS=[Windows Server 2003 R2 3790 Service Pack 2] Server=[Windows Server 2003 R2 5.2]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
and with the username
Code:
[kris@biggirl ~]$ smbclient //server/DESIGN -U guest
Enter guest's password: 
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
...it really looks like a username issue so that's cool something should work.

Has anyone heard of or identified the problem with browsing in using the Places->Network method?

I put "tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED" into a google search and got a lot of hits. I didn't follow but a couple of leads there, but maybe you can get some clues by doing the same. Some hopeful information at this link on those search results:

And a few more on the forum surprised that domain is causing a problem thought bug was only on standalone servers where network browsing was not working on the desktop

it s not a bug
just the security rules in tbsam
when you make a request , the security search in database security
user -> user in the domain etc
the windows ntlm user --> machine/user
if the machine je not attached go domain the resolution falls
you do choice the good security in your server
domain or server or user

Well this one may not be but on standalone
This is extract of cat /var/log/messages directly following startup. This is causing a 30 second or so hang before the desktop will fully load (gnome) and although I have access to shares from all other machines on this box. This box will not browse the network, this was confirmed as a bug and a fix was sent upstream just waiting for an update to appear.

I thought that it was strange with domain servers as I would have seen more posts giving errors. Sorry just thought may be related as the bug seems to be in samba handling in the new gnome filesystem from what I can make out. It does not have any connection to security in tbsam for my problem.

Those errors seem to be more in-line with a "bug" than a problem/issue with DNS.

I finally figured out what my problem was. With the firewall closing all the incoming ports the server is unable to send certain information. I only thought I needed to open the smb ports if I was sharing stuff. As soon as I checked of smb in the firewall (ports 139 and 445 I think are the specific ports needed) I was able to browse.

Cheers!

Update: The firewall change allowed me to browse the network but I can't see any shares on the individual machines.

...the saga continues...luckily everything I'm doing now is on paper so it's not critical.

Ah Ha you have caught me up . Check your message log you to see if you have the same error reported with gnome-gvfs and libnss-wins if so might help if you added yourself to the bug

I checked the whole /var/log/messages log for anything to do with smb, gvfs and other errors and the only errors I see (with |grep segfault) is for tomboy and pulseaudio.

Ok you seem to be having different problem. i have just found a sort of work around for mine. I have manually added the ip addresses of the f9 box and a couple of others (after setting up a reserved IP address in the dchp settings of my router) and adding them to my /etc/hosts file
127.0.0.1 LINSERVER localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
192.168.0.2 LINSERVER
192.168.0.7 MARYANNE
192.168.0.4 ADAM-LAPTOP
I can now access these boxes by just hitting the connect if prompted in authentication window no password entered. The only thing I can see is that it is flakey and once you double click on a shared folder it is mounted in computer. Have to manually unmount these. It seems to be a little hit and miss on an XP box but Vista seems better. Not ideal but it does allow browsing of the machines.

Does seem you have different problem although the same symptoms. not being able to browse the network from the desktop. I wish you luck. Going to give it a break now as I have had enough pick it up again tomorrow going back to f8 to get some work sorted.
