Ubuntu Networking :: How To Browse Windows Network

Ubuntu 9.10 now, before 9.04 was installed. On both versions I was unable to browse windows network - when I visit corresponding icon in nautilus, I see error message:
??????-???? -- ???????????? ??????.png
Looks like some service was missed at startup and not running.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Cannot Browse Windows Network Or Connect To Windows Shared Folders
I have a fresh install of CentOS 5.5. I am trying to browse to the Windows machines on my network (Places > Network Servers > Windows Network), but I get a blank window. I am able to ping the Windows machines using their IP address, but not by their name. What do I need to do to be able to see the Windows machines and also to connect to shared folders on these machines? So far I have tried starting SMB (via System > Administration > Server Settings > Services). I have also tried changing my smb workgroup to "WORKGROUP" (the default was mygroup which did not match my Windows machines.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can Browse Windows Network / But Not Other Linux Boxes
I noticed tonight when I go to Places, Network, it will bring up an icon for Windows Network, and I can drill down to my Windows box. But I can't see the other Linux box (a laptop running Kubuntu), and the same behavior occurs on the laptop when trying to view the Linux desktop. The laptop is connected wirelessly, if that makes a difference. Each box can ping the others, but I don't yet know how to browse one Linux box from the other Linux box.

Ubuntu :: Browse Windows Network Directories?
Though File Manager allows me to browse Windows network directories ( Ctrl-L shows a path like smb://diskstation/mikeother/Web/Alta_Vista ), I can't figure out how to browse to them in applications like Firefox, which doesn't show "Network" as an option when doing File > Open. How can I browse to the Windows network within FF?

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Browse Internet At University / Works Fine In Windows
I'm not able to connect to my university's internet facilities under openSUSE 11.4. I have been able to connect in the past and I am still able to connect in Windows 7.When I try to connect to the university WiFi, a valid IP address is assigned to me and the gateway address appears to be correct, so I don't see a problem in the DHCP negotations. Same with my university's Ethernet: I get a valid IP address, but I can't connect to the internet.When I browse to any site with Chromium/Chrome/ Firefox/lynx/curl, the page is stuck at "Sending request". I have tried disabling my firewall - that didn't solve anything.I don't know what else I can try and the campus' network administrators are puzzled. How can I resolve my issue?

Networking :: Cannot Browse Network From Ubuntu / Resolve This?
I cannot browse the network from Ubuntu, but I can see the ubuntu machines from the windows including file and printing.
Nautilus gives the following error:
Could not display "network:///".
Nautilus cannot handle "network" locations.

Workgroup names all set the same
Sharing allowed on all machines

I have read all of the postings on this I think and have not been able to implement a solution.

Ubuntu Networking :: VPN Connect But Cannot Browse Remote Network
I hope someone can help me as I am new to Linux and Ubuntu. I am running Ubuntu 11.04 and am trying to get VPN working properly with the pptp protocol. It is connecting but I cant seem to view folders or start a RDP session. I have tried this out with a Windows and a Linux machine and both work. The Linux machine was running Mint 10, in the vpn configuration I had set the gateway, user and pass, then in advanced mschap and mschapv2 were selected as well as mppe, allow bsd, allow deflate, and use tcp header. These settings work fine with Mint but its not working for me using Ubuntu. I did try to ping, sometimes it works sometimes it wont.

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager In Hardy - Unable To Browse On The Net
I have been using Hardy for about 3yrs now and using dialup to connect to the internet. I have a 64bit ASUS with a nVidia ethernet interface........I have just recently switched to cable broadband with a wired connection direct to the eth0 port. I have another computer running puppy linux in which the broadband works. hence this is how I am typing this now. I have connected my ubuntu machine to the cable and the network admin shows a wired connection but will not let me browse on the net with any browser. Not really sure how I got puppy to find it, but it did.

I have used the network manager on both machines with one connecting and the other not. I know there a newer ubuntu's out but I really do like Hardy and want to keep it, but without internet connection other than dialup it seems a bit lame. I am not above using command line options as I use wodim and wget all the time, so my question is.

Fedora Networking :: F13 VPN / Network Conflicts - Cannot Browse Internet
I'm using VPNC to connect to a remote cisco network, however I cannot browse the internet after the tunnel establishes. I know this is a DNS issue, as I can ping external address by IP (e.g. google). I can also communicate through the VPN tunnel without trouble.

/etc/resolv.conf gets updated by the VPNC with the remote networks DNS Servers, but I still cannot connect to the internet. I even manually tried to add my local nameserver to the /etc/resolv.conf file, without luck.

Also, just as a side note, I can only establish the tunnel via the command line "vpnc" command. I'm using Fedora 13 with KDE, but knetworkmanager / networkmanager will not establish the tunnel, however I haven't really dug very deep as to why. I've just setup some vpnc config files for loading the various connections manually, as needed.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Network - Setting Up The Unbutu PCs To Browse The Workgroup
I have a home network with Ubuntu (3 PC) Windows (XP 3, 7 1 vista 1) and Lacie networked drive. I have successfully edited fstab to mount the lacie drive at startup on my main ubuntu PC and it works a treat. My problem is setting up the Unbutu PCs to browse the workgroup. This was working but now (since my last update of Unbutu I think) I get prompted for a password and no matter what I do it does not let me browse.

Now I have read a few things on Samba and do not have the time or ability to become a network engineer. All I want to do is is have on my Ubuntu the same browsing ability that seems to come out of the box in Windows.

Ubuntu :: Can't Browse Through Windows
I just booted up, after making a flash USB for a test (didn't work) so I booted as normally into Ubuntu 9.10 (not dual boot). When I get back on, there's this... I don't know how to explain it. If someone can think of a better way to explain this, I'll change the title to be a bit more helpful, and easier to search for those who have a similar problem.

I can't browse through windows (such as with Alt + Tab, or even just clicking on another window), nothing comes to the front, and stays as is. I've not touched my graphics / display settings, so the only thing I can think of, is when I was going through the boot-up applications, but I doubt I disabled anything that would have been graphics and GUI based, or the compizconfig-settings-manager disrupted something. I've ye to test anything, it's rather early.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Browse Windows Shares
I have been quite frustrated searching around for others that have had the same problems as I have had an what solutions are available. It appears there is a plethora of issues surrounding file sharing between Ubuntu and Windows machines; but things work prefectly for some and not for others.

The specific problem that I have having is that I cannot access file shares from any of the Windows 7 machines on my network. I use a Windows 7 machine for the main source of files that I like to access from other machines on the network. I do not normally access it from other Windows 7 machines through a Homegroup (I have removed the Windows 7 PC from the homegroup while trying to figure this out as well) - I normally just browse the network via the Windows 7 machine.

Here is what I'm doing (and seeing):

1. Click on home folder icon on Unity's launcher

2. Click "Network" in the sidepane

3. Wait a long time (like 40 seconds or so). "Windows Network" is the only folder/icon showing up in the "Network" folder once it shows anything.

4. Click on "Windows Network"

5. "WORKGROUP" shows up

6. Click on it

7. There is a delay with no visual indication (other than nothing happens and clicking in that window does nothing) and then I see "Opening "WORKGROUP" - Click cancel to stop"

8. See "Unable to mount location - Failed to retrieve share list from server"

I ran 'smbtree -N' and see a line for the PC I'm currently using, plus I see the following line for the other two PCs in the workgroup "WORKGROUP" (name is different for other PC):

cli_start_connection: failed to connect to MEDIA-PC<20> ( Error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL

I've seen guides to auto-mount certain shares from other projects to specific locations, and I'll probably do this at some point, but I really want to be able to browse the other machines shares.

session request to failed (Called name not present)
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed 9.10 Now Not Able To Browse Network
I had a 9.04 install that was working well within the network. I had a lot of shares setup from a windows 2003 server. Unfortunately, I had a hardware failure and had to upgrade. Also unfortunately, 9.04 would not install on the new hardware (MB/CPU/RAM), but I was able to install 9.10.Now my problem is I can not browse the windows network. I installed samba and followed the instructions found here

When I go to network through nautilus, I see a windows network icon, when I open it, there is nothing.I am at a loss and really need this problem resolved (work production computer)

Fedora :: Unable To Browse Network
I just installed FC15 from scratch, and everything seems to be working OK, except that I cannot view other computers on my local network. I didn't have any problems when I was running FC13.I am able to get on the internet, and view the website I configured on this machine, but anything "network" related I cannot see.But now when I open Network, I am presented with MYGROUP, WORKGROUP, and my domain name (which is my actual "workgroup" as I don't have a domain). I cannot get to any of them - get the same timeout error as above.

Ubuntu :: Cant Browse Network Shares In File Dialogue Box From A Web Browser?
While in a web browser I'm trying to attach a file which resides on a network location. The file dialogue doesn't allow me to browse any network location. I've mounted the volume and added locations to favorites. I've also tried entering an smb:// path. This only happens in browsers, both FFnd Chrome, some examples would be attaching a file in gmail, yousendit, etc. I can browse and work off the network normally in desktop apps.

I'm very new to *nix.

OpenSUSE Network :: Cannot Browse Outside LAN - Illegal Request
Tomorrow I decided to dedicate 100% of my disk to opensuse! So I backed up the files from the remaining windows partition, deleted them and expanded the /home partition. Well, I ran into some problems during first boot. I referred to an article at the wiki and fixed it. Although I did some small fixing manually at the fstab file. The system booted! But I can't browse anywhere outside the local network! At this forum I found some info regarding the dmesg |tail command. Here is my output:
