    Moodle 2.6 with Windows Shares block

    I'm a complete newbie to Moodle as we are just in the early stages of implementing it here. By some miracle I have managed to get SSO working

    However I am struggling with the "Windows Shares Block" which uses the smbclient. We are running Moodle off a Windows Server (sorry *.nix guys) and I've got CYGWIN installed and the most up-to-date smbclient.exe

    However, when I try opening links to shares they just open up as block windows with a toolbar along the top (for file uploads, new folders etc)

    Anybody got a simple how to guide for making this work on Windows? I've posted on the Moodle forums but no answer as yet. We are running Moodle 2.6 btw.

    EDIT - additional notes: SSL is turned off, Clam AV is disabled and I have entered a username prefix of DOMAINNAME/ into the settings page

    Yep that me on there Will take a nosey this morning for replies. It seems so many people run it from a *nix box which we don't have, it just makes it harder for someone like me who is using Windows IIS :-/

    We run Moodle with IIS so you are not alone. We used to use Apache on Windows, but with the change to Shibboleth we changed to IIS. We don't use the windows share access though.
