How do I find this shared directory on my Windows XP machine?


Hi,

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04. I just installed Samba and added this entry to the smb.conf file ...

Code:
[public]
    comment = Selenium Server directory
    path = /opt/selenium
    public = yes
    writable = no
I want to be able to access this directory from a Virutal Windows XP box running on my Ubuntu machine. I would like this directory to be immediately available to Windows upon booting the virtual machine (i.e. don't want to enter credentials).

My question is, how do I find the shared directory I just set up on my WinXP machine?

Thanks, - Dave

The question is, within "Map Network Drive", what "Folder" do I pick? In other words, how do I find the folder I shared on Linux in the list? I don't see anything in the "Browse" list that resembles my Linux shared directory. I have an entry that reads "VirtualBox Shared Folders" but I don't see my Linux directory under there.

well then go to My Documents. in the address bar up top type in \\ipaddress\path\to\smb\share. And to Map it does the same thing do map network drive select a drive letter and type in \\ipaddress\path\to\smb\share Have you ever mapped a drive in windows? if not i would go read up on it. Where is the rest of your smb.conf file? are you sure it is all set up?
