The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 700
spurious authentications when enumerating servers
Last modified: 2005-08-24 10:20:59 UTC
when reading smb:// unneeded authentication calls are being made.
This makes enumerating servers on the local network ask the user for a password.
Maybe there are any workarounds when using libsmbclient 3.0.0 ?
Ok, can you give me more details on these "spurious" authentications.
Network traces and an explaination of how to reproduce would help.
See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119172 for the background. I'm not
sure if this answers your question, though.

You can see in the logs here that there was one authentication request when
browsing smb://. This is unneeded, IMO, and on decently sized networks, it's
going to create a lot of authentication requests.
closing this one. No followup reports confirming any bug and the
report is so old it may or may not be valid. If the bug still exists
in 3.0.11, please reopen. Thanks.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
