Samba, Problem file sharing with Windows
 
I want to access my files on Windows Vista(PC) through wireless network with linux(Laptop),

In samba shares I can see and browse all my files and drives that are on my PC, but when I try to open or copy any file to my laptop it says "The file or folder <path> does not exist"

What I didn't do and what do I supposed to do to make it work?
:newbie:

Have you actually mounted the share, or are you just browsing it with some file manager? Try to mount it with a command like:

Code:

sudo mount -t smbfs //Server/Share /mnt/mntpoint
