ASA 8.04 clientless cifs windows

Unanswered Question
Oct 23rd, 2008

Hello all,

i tried to look for information about the configuration in https portal in order to access windows files on windows 2008 server.

I saw that cifs only support netbios, it's very strange because of new protocols in windows files now.

So when I tried to connect my file server using the ip address and the sahre folder using this syntax :

\\ip address\sharefolder$

it doesn't work, the message is : "cannot find server or dns error"

My question is, is it cifs not supported by cisco with windows 2008 ? do i need to create access rules to the internal network when connecting to the https portal ?

thank you

I have this problem too.

thank you andrew, ok for me DNS already works, i didn't install WINS because of windows 2008 but it still doesn't work, therefore, i tried using ip address to eliminate resolution problems.

DNS works because when i use http tool in the address bar of the portal i can access to Internet, but my only problem is for CIFS, can you give me the syntax : cifs://$ or cifs://\\\c$

another question that can help, username and password in the asa are local and for the share folder, it's another login/password, can i enter login and password in the cifs address like for ftp ?

thank you
