    You started and configured Samba? I ask because you do not say you did anything like that. Look here for a good tutorial: openSUSE SuSE Linux HOWTOs and Tutorials by Swerdna

    Samba is probably already running on the NAS, if by that he means an off the shelf box. OP you have to be more detailed about what you did or did not do. I have no problem connecting to SMB shares from KDE.

    thanks for the reply
    do I need to install and configure samba for this? I’m not planning to run a samba server or share files from this computer but just browse the network nas drive, smbclient is just the tool for this and I checked it's installed so how does it work in opensuse? it should be simple! also I don't want to system mount the drive only use a local mount for the drive when the computer is connected to wired network, I use wireless sometimes and the drive is not on the wireless network.

    what about posting the output of
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig -a
    ?
    My guess is that you're not in the same lan as your NAS.

    hi
    did you have to open any firewall port?
    or how do you connect to the off the shelf box? what option did you choose in the dolphin network, I tried with the network folder but it refused the connection.

    No. You don't. As far as I know, you could also connect to a samba server from a live CD. Maybe you should try that first.

    No, since openSUSE is the client, generally there are no firewall restrictions on connecting out. I just clicked on the network icon and browsed to the share I wanted. You should check if there is any setting on the NAS to allow only certain clients. And follow any advice others give to check if you on the same subnet as the NAS. BTW, I'm on openSUSE 11.3. You didn't say what release you are on, another piece of information that should not have to be wheedled out of you.

    Are you sure about your NAS ip (192.168.0.1) ? It looks like a router ip. What is the output of:
    Code:
    /sbin/route -n
