RE: [seul-edu] File Space on a Samba Server

I don't know whether this will help, but from a W98 machine, if I right
click/properties on a sharename (by expanding Network Neighborhood), then I
do not get any space information.  On the other hand, if I map the sharename
to a "drive letter" and then from Windows Explorer, right click/properties,
then I will get space utilization information (however, it seems to be
truncated to 2Gigs).  I'm testing this at home using a W98/W95 peer network.
I'll try it tomorrow with Samba at work.

Subject: [seul-edu] File Space on a Samba Server

Hi all ... I am trying to find an "easy" way for users to know how much
directory space they are using from a Win Nt workstation.

Here is the scenario ... a samba server (1.9.18p10) that shares users home
The relevant part of smb.conf is

   comment = %U's Files
   browseable = no
   writable = yes

when the user right clicks on her folder, and selects properties, from a
workstation (all are NT 4.0) she gets the dialog "The server does not accept
remote requests" . If she goes inside of her directory and right clicks and
selects properties on a folder, then she gets all relevant information.

How do I make it so that she can also see the properties on her folder?
