I want to find out about the Windows XP "shares" on my wife's windows machine by browsing from my Linux machine using Samba. I am relatively clueless about both windows and samba. I tried a basic operation from the command line and got this error:
: nr@homedog 8088 ; smbclient -L sapphire timeout connecting to 188.8.131.52:445 timeout connecting to 184.108.40.206:139 Connection to sapphire failed (Error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED)
I've Googled this error message and have determined that a lot of people have similar problems, but I can't find a workaround. I suspect my wife has to grant some sort of access or permission on the Windows side. Any suggestions?
