We ARE able to see Windows PCs on our network from Ubuntu's NAUTILUS, yet we are NOT able to access their shares from NAUTILUS, even though they work fine with each other, i.e. each windows PC IS able access the other Windows PC's shares just fine.

Please infer from this information the answers to any questions about our situation you may have. Note this is a default/pristine configuration, i.e. no changes have been made whatsoever.

Our version of Ubuntu is: 11.10, NAUTILUS is 3.2.1

Linux tite-HP-630-Notebook-PC 3.0.0-15-generic #26-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 20 17:23:00 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

A screenshot is available upon request.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Do you have any firewall enabled? I was having a similar problem today and modifying my firewall to allow samba connections seemed to solve the problem.
