    Default [smb4k 0.10.9 server side/0.10.7 client side] sharing issue

    I have a laptop in 11.3 using smb4k 0.10.7 that connected to a server in 11.1 (don't know the version of smb4k used) that was clean installed to 11.4 (with smb4k 0.10.9).

    The goal is to connect the laptop and access to the server's shared folders.

    I heard or read that cifs was abandoned (?) for security reasons on 11.4 but I tried to use smb4k anyway.

    Problem is: I can't access to the server's shared folders but only in command line.

    For example, logged as root: mount -t cifs 192.168.1.3:/users /mountedsmb worked.

    But just for avoid dying ignorant I want to know how I could make things to let smb4k client side mounting the shares provided by samba ?

    Here is the extract of the smb.conf file:

    Code:
    [users]
            comment = All users
            path = /home/
            read only = No 
            inherit acls = Yes
            veto files = /aquota.user/groups/shares/
    Reverted it works, I can use smb4k 0.10.9 to mount without any problem the shares provided by the samba installed on the client side.

    Looking at the lmhosts... oh my god !!
    This is it, I changed the way of connecting on my server, from wifi (slow) to ethernet (very fast) and the ip address provided by this m*th*r********r adsl router (I hate it) gave 192.168.1.2 to the wifi interface, and now I have the 192.168.1.3 address, but in the client side, at lmhosts, I renamed the entry 192.168.1.2 to antareswifi and added 192.168.1.3 antares and then the smb4k worked better...

    Apologizes due to my ignorance...

    So does the above sentence mean you have switched to using openSUSE 11.4? You mention three different version of openSUSE including 11.1 that is no longer supported. There is a bug with openSUSE 11.4 and nmb for which you can see the fix here:

    Samba set up : nmb is not starting

    For most issues with Samba I suggest a visit to here:
