I recently switched my Ubuntu OS from server 10 to desktop 12. Previously when I setup Samba I was able to see Windows from Ubuntu and Ubuntu from Windows. Now it seems that I can only see Windows shared folders from Ubuntu and when I attempt to access Ubuntu folders from Windows I get an error that reads, "\\(SambaServerShare) is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the admin...The network path was not found". I found some help in a previous internet search. From the LinuxQuestions.org site I found an older tutorial. I've got lots to learn and didn't know if there was an updated Samaba tutorial for Ubuntu 12+ and Windows (including 7 & 8), or if someone might know what I've overlooked by my error message. Thanks in advance, -Matt
I recently posted this and realize I should add the tutorial I found that has helped get my this far.
Unfortunately, I'm missing something, cross platform host file or something, I'm not sure. I will continue reading, thanks in advance to anyone that could offer a direction or link. -Matt
