    Unhappy mounting Windows Server using AD on SLES 10

    Hi,
    We have a Windows 2003 server that uses Active Directory to authenticate users. What I am trying to do, is mount my user account on the windows server, onto my SLES 10 server. I am using Nautilus' URL box and specify the connection like this:
    smb://172.20.1.2/

    A dialog window appears on top of the connected server window (with list of all available shares on that server) whilst prompting for a domain name and my password. Even if I provided the right domain name and password, it would not allow me to get through and see the shares on the domain and exits while giving me an error.

    Do I need to alter /etc/samba/smb.conf to allow connection to the remote server? Also, do I have to specify the IP 172.20.1.2 as a host.allow entity?

    I'm at the end of my wits. Can somebody help me out, please?
