I have an strange problem. Here's the situation.
I have a hard drive that I've attached to my boxee box. my boxee box along with 3 other computers i have running linux are on the same network, and on the same workgroup using samba. For some reason, none of the computers can log in to the boxee box and access the shared hard drive.
What will happen is that I open nautilus (or any file manager), i enter the address of the boxee box's attached hard drive, and a pop-up comes up asking for my user info (username, domain, password). i enter the information, but the pop-up comes up again.
I've made a quick recording showing this.
i'm not an expert in samba, but i'm pretty sure i've set it up right. at least i know all the computers and the boxee box are on the same network and workgroup.
The weird thing is that 2 of those 3 linux machines i dual boot with windows (1 with windows 7. another with windows 8) and i have no problems accessing boxee box's hard drive under windows.
also, my android tablet and android phone authenticate without a problem too.
i thought it might be samba, but android uses samba as well.
i'm just completely lost here and i would really appreciate it if anybody could help me out here.
it's driving me crazy having to reboot my computer into windows just to put some videos or pictures to my boxee box hard drive.
