With these boxes it seems that forcing the workgroup is necessary: smbclient -L 10.1.0.25 -W WORKGROUP -U jason You can verify the workgroup of the box by running: $ nmblookup -A 10.1.0.25 | grep GROUP ..__MSBROWSE__. <01> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE> WORKGROUP <00> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE> WORKGROUP ...

Since the question is about diagnostics, rather than the eventual solution, I'll describe the things I tried that got me closer to the solution (the updates within the question summarise most of it). When reading the command output below, note that my NAS is called giles and the domain name is SUNNYDALE. My local username, and that on the box is jason. I ...

What always worked for me is to mount the shared folder of the Windows host to the vmware guest linux machine via CIFS. Let's suppose that your hosted machine is connected to a virtual network (network type is not relevant) with an ip address range 192.168.5.0/24, your host machine (windows) address should be 192.168.5.1: First set password to your Windows ...

First kill the already running process like this: killall wpa_supplicant Then run it in debug-mode like this (redirecting output to standard output and to the specified log-file): wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -d | tee ...

So, your Linux server has a windows share mounted on a local directory, but apparently you cannot write to it. I suppose that this share has been setup as guest access, hence the read only status. Please refer to the ubuntu documentation on mounting windows share as a starting point to fix this configuration issue. As a work around for the time being, I ...

Problem solved. Windows is gone and Gnome Ubuntu has taken its place. Should have done it long ago. Windows 7 Home is just too problematic with Samba. Had a hell of a time getting it to work in the first place, and then it was not reliable. Not putting any more effort into windows, we are now an Ubuntu family.

Nautilus uses the Gnome Virtual File System (gvfs) to mount devices. In a system that's already running a gvfsd daemon you can initiate a mount manually using the gvfs-mount command e.g. gvfs-mount smb://ip.address.goes.here/sharename which should cause a link to the share to appear in the Nautilus sidebar; the actual mountpoint should appear in the ...
