Unable to connect through CIFS to Alfresco running on Ubuntu

I am running Alfresco 3.0 labs on Ubuntu (8.04). The installation looks fine – I am able to do all the things through web-client without problems.

I am also able to connect using Webdav, but when I try to connect to alfresco from a Windows machine using CIFS, I am unable to connect.

I am using \\192.168.1.6\Alfresco (I have tried Alfresco with lowercase as well) & when prompted for the username/password, I use super secret admin/admin.

When I do that, it keeps popping up the dialog for user-name/password.

I have googled enough for it and also gone through the wiki pages, without any help. Alfreso forums does not allow me to search for the keyword "CIFS" – it thinks it is too common and simply ignores it.

Any clues?
