Hi everyone,

We can access samba shares on our k12 server via fat MS windows PCs, but 
I'm having trouble with connecting to those samba shares via my linux 
laptop. The laptop is on the network and online but when I launch 
nautilus with the address:
nothing happens. I can connect to smb shares using the same username on 
a PC so I know the username is correct and the smb setup works.

I just need to easily move files from my main working machine (my 
laptop) to the apache server on our k12ltsp box. Another thought was to 
ftp them across, but I although I have gFTP (to ftp to a web server in 
another state) I have no idea how to setup ftp access on our local k12 

Help with either issues (samba/ftp) would solve the problem.

And, it's offically our last day of school here in Queensland!!
