    Hello,

    When running panther, in Finder, I would go to Finder/Go/Connect to server and type: smb:\\192.168.1.100 and I would be able to connect to my Linux box that has Samba shares on it. Since I upgraded to Tiger this no longer works. I get the following error message:

    The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "smb://192.168.1.100" could not be read read or written. (Error Code -36).

    I am, however, able to connect to Windows servers just fine. Does anyone have any ideas how I can fix this or a workaround? There have been no changes to my Linux server whatsoever.

    Many thanks,
    Steamboatwillie

    Thanks, I am downloading it now, I'll post again if it fixes it. Here is the link if anyone else needs it:

    I had this problem as well. A reboot of the Linux machine fixed the problem.
