Unhappy Good SMB client for Win 2008r2 server?

I'm trying to find a good SMB client that can connect to my Win 2008r2 file server.

I've tried ES File Explorer and File Expert. I've gotten File Expert to see my network share but retreiving contents is beyond slow, and I gave up. File Explorer won't connect no matter what.

I'm a Windows admin in my other life so I'm well aware that Win 7 broke a lot of old (and new ) SMB clients, but I was hoping for some luck.

Until we have cifs module compile, you have to use ES File Explorer. Did you do a LAN scan in ES File Explorer? My Windows 7 shared folders shows up and I can access them.

Yes, ES sees my server but either login fails or else server not found. I don't have guest access enabled. I run a domain network at home -- and I well know that is the steepest hill for any cifs client.

What are your settings? It's OK if you fake the ip's. Just so I have boilerplate to make ES happy.
