I have two machines: a 12.10 which autodiscovers my NAS fine and a 13.04 which does not autodiscover the NAS in Nautilus. The latter does not display the drive in Nautilus.

I did install samba on the 13.04, I think a while ago, but I cannot remember what I did. Before I connected to the drive using afp, now I notice the 12.10 uses smb.

How can I make my 13.04 autodiscover the NAS and how should I configure it?

Would a simple bookmark in nautilus do it? I know that's not the answer for the question you are looking for, but its convenient ;) – ortang Jun 24 '13 at 16:56
That would be nice if Nautilus could actually find the NAS. – don.joey Jun 25 '13 at 7:09
