Thread: Windows 7, Mapped Drives and Samba

    Default Windows 7, Mapped Drives and Samba

    Hi,

    A quick question, i hope!

    Using the latest version of SuSE with Samba setup with UserName and PassWord protection enabled are there any issues getting Win7 computers to create a Mapped Drive to this network location and loggin as required when prompted for a UserName and PassWord.

    akwe-xavante;

    Earlier this week I set up a Windows 7 machine on the Samba domain (Samba
    version 3.3.9) and their was no problem using network services (yet). Did not
    try mapping a drive. Point & click printing worked fine as did file access.
    I assume 11.2 has the 3.4.x branch, which is suppose to be even more Windows
    7 friendly.
