I use Mandriva 2006 and to connect with Nautilus I enter in the address line
and a box pops up asking for user name, domain and password. The
username and password must be valid for the remote host, domain can be
ignored and it connects no probs.
Are you sure smbmount does not work ? A samba client without this
function seems a bit strange. Can you ping the remote host ?
Occaisionally I cannot connect and a ping to the remote host fails but a
refresh of the network config always fixes the problem. If anyone has an
explanation as to why it goes down I would be grateful. It is not a
major problem, just a minor annoyance.
