I have a Windows 7 share folder I want to read and write to from Fedora 13-Gnome with samba.
I have enabled samba server and client in the services.
The connection from Places > Network
or from Connect to server
I get to see the workgroup name, then the W7 computer name
A dialog asks for the user password. It did not have one but I made one.
However the dialog returns with the pw box blank instead of accepting the password

I have turned off Windows Firewall for private networks.

Do you have any clues for my predicament?

It would be easy for Microsoft to give the Open source community what it needs to make Samba 100% compatible, but I guess that's never going to happen -_-
