           Summary: default samba URI smb:/// confusing
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: nautilus

I was trying to browse a share by its IP from the Windows Network place in
nautilus, so I typed Ctrl+L. The location bar appeared with "smb:///" (note the
three slashes).

naturally I completed with the IP of the machine if I got an error: "Impossible
d'afficher « smb:/// ». L'emplacement n'est pas un dossier."

The trick is to remove the third slash or type your IP before it.

The same thing happens when you use the menu, File, Connect to a server.
