Thanks for your reply.

I've checked firewall and to my knowledge it's disabled, here is what my
iptables -L prints:

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination        

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination        

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

As I mentioned in my original e-mail I can access my samba shares form
command line (smbclient and mount -t cifs ....). The problem only occurs
when using nautilus. I've also disabled SELinux but without any luck. I
think, I should be asked for password for my share somewhere during
clicking in nautilus but I'm not. Maybe there is a failure?
