I have one project where the customer is migrating from Windows XP to
Linux . The main requirement for them is to access network shares as
they are accessing network shares in XP . In XP , a domain user can
browse the network and he can go into any computer which is part of
the domain . The user no needs to provide user name and password to
access network shares in XP ( provided by appropriate permissions ) .
So, the customer is expecting same thing from Linux.
In KDE , if i am browsing the windows network by using konqeror , you
can see all the domains in the network and machines which are part of
these domain . But , when i am trying access to one machine ,
username-password dialog box appears . After providing username &
password credentials , a user can go inside that machine and he can
access the shares which are in that machine . If you try to access
same machine second time , you won't get username-password dialog box
. Konqeror has capabilities to cache the password , but this is not
permenent for windows networks . Kwallet also doesn't helping me to
solve this issue.
I joined Linux to their domain , but still the problem exists . Please
any body can tell me how we can solve the problem . Is kwallet solve
this kind problems or is there is any way to solve this problem .
Actually , this is the common requirement for all customers who are
migrating from Windows to Linux .
Thanks & Regards,
Your bug is a feature. Cached passwords that affect a login permanently
and allow access across an entire domain are very insecure. Quote
security reasons and they might just say "okay".
