Hi I know Samba problems is all over the places. But I am through with searching none of the solution worked for me (Disable firewall, Install that lib, Config smb.conf and stuffs)

Actually the windows share is accessible from Ubuntu without any problem, but not until there's file transfer from another Win-7 machine to/from the shared folder. Then none of my ubuntu machine can access the share again until WIN7 is rebooted.

$smbtree will show ..

failed negprot: ERRnomen

$smbclient -L WIN7

protocol negotiation failed: ERRnomem

and as always, nautilus will show

Could not display "smb://WIN7/folder"
Error: Failed to mount Windows share
Please select another viewer and try again.

Any clue? Thank you so much in advance.

Tweak Windows 7 side:



to 3

Computer\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

to 1

No need to reboot or anything, the change will take place on the fly.
