On the standard Fedora 25 Gnome desktop, I have a remote samba share to which I can connect on the command line using:

mount -t cifs -o username=myuser -o password=mypass //path/to/shared/ /local/dir/

However, when I attempt to add this share using the Gnome file browser (which uses gvfs), by using CTRL-L and entering the address in the address bar:


...it prompts for the registered user details username, domain and password. However, there is no way to not provide a domain as the 'connect' button is greyed out for an empty domain entry. The defaults of SAMBA and WORKGROUP do not work.

How can I mount the share using the Gnome GUI in this way, without having to specify the domain?
