Vista: Accessing Samba Server?

I can’t find anything about it in Google and I don’t have time right now to pursue the matter, but my new Vista installation steadfastly refuses to talk to my file server, running Samba on a Linux machine. I can try to connect to the share and I’m asked for my authentication, but Vista doesn’t like my username/password combination, no matter what I do. I did manage to connect to a Windows XP machine, so I guess they just killed the protocol once again…

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
