    Make Nautilus Scan for Samba Networks


    I can do the ol' Connect to Server 192.168.0.x in Nautilus and find my fellow Windows machines on my home network, but I can't get Nautilus to just show them to me. So I have some questions:

    1) How do I scan my home network for samba shares such as 192.168.0.x

    2) How do I get Nautilus to show them? It currently shows nothing under Network->Windows Network.

    I don't have any active Samba shares at the moment to test this, however I was just wondering if nautilus did not already show these in the side panel?
    If the side panel view is enabled it shows Places and under that is servers etc. At least it does here?
    View/ Side Panel --enabled
