I have client PC with openSUSE 12.2 with KDE desktop and Dolphin file manager and server for file sharing with Windows Server 2008 R2. Of course, the first I tried to do is to use Samba and typed into Dolphin:
And directory opened with all files. One of the problems is that I need to enter password in every 5 minutes after i close Dolphin. It should remember credentials before i logout. Second problems is that Linux won't open any network files. It must be copied to local directory before it can be opened and it's very big problem because i spend lot of time copying big files that i should only open on network location and run. People said that smb is not optimized for this use and NFS is much better for linux.
So, I installed a Role in Server 2008 called File Services and Services for Network File System in it. And after that, i shared a folder in server (Properties > NFS Sharing) and typed in Dolphin:
And directory opened, but same as in smb, you cannot view or open any network files. Is this problem part of protocol or it is a security issue in Linux?
Please, if you know, help me to find out.
