Using connect to server in Finder, I can specify a share, e.g. smb:// , to my local file server and get a connection, but cannot access the share. I get the following error message: "The folder “home” can’t be opened because you don’t have permission to see its contents." This is despite the fact that the exact same connection with OS X 10.6.8 and various other OS and devices all connect flawlessly. Have been able to reproduce the error on 2 different computers with OS X 10.7.2


Is there a workaround for this bug?

    I'm having similar issues connecting from 10.7.3 to Win Server 2003.  I am getting messages that I don't have access to copy and rename things even though I am connected as the system administrator.  At one point, I got two similar share points showing up even though I had only one connection.


    Disconnecting and reconnecting seems to help for a while.
