Hi, I'm newbie in the linux world and... very newbie in the slax distro.
I found that slax is one of the best small distro, and I love it.
I run my slax on thinclient t5725.
The network browsing is very user friendly but I have a troubele.
I have added a new object called "Musica" in the "Remote places" by accessing the "System" icon on the desktop.
So, every time I try to access to the remote shares that I have named "Musica", SLAX tellme to insert login and password for this share. I insert log/pass and I can browse the folder.
Once I have opened the shared folder "Musica" I cannot play any videos or songs because KPlayer report an error

...seems KPlaye don't have login and password for open the file.

In few words I think that what I have to do is to mount a permnently shared drive with the complete set of permissions.

Any suggestion guys?
Thanks

Control center>Network>Local network>Windows shares

userid+password

It works for surfing the lan (smb://) and moving files (in krusader or konqueror), I don't know if it's ok for other apps.

It sounds like a sharing permissions issue on the computer that you are trying to access across the lan. If the OS on the remote system is windows xp, try enabling the guest account (disabled by default). Sometimes this helps with file sharing from a windows machine of a remote client is prompting for access credentials on a network share that should be open and require none.

AARGH...

I forgot it. The user you specify in slax must be configured and enabled in win.

Yes, the folder that i want to share is a windows Vista folder.
And... in SlaxI have no set any user, so I think that my user is default slax user... login is root and password root (or toor)?
If I want to specify a new user how i can to do? How I can login slax with the new user?

I have tryed to set user/pass in "Control center>Network>Local network>Windows shares" but the problem still remain...

I dunno if there is a version of openssh for vista..
I just use ssh, sftp in konqueror for sharing files and directory's (linux to xp and vica verca)

Only requirement is that the windows users must set a password, that is if you want to log in from a
linux-box to a windows-box.
(in linux, users most of the time have a password)
Normaly konquerer offers you the posibility to save the password...

I think you want to say, toor is the default password in slax, for the root user "root"?
