There was an error copying the file into smb:// PcName/Folder/Folder


Hi, I have become a new member of LinuxQuestions.org in hope to get better support from other users.

First Post WOOO!

Anyways when I try to copy a file over my wireless network from my ubuntu to a windows vista machine it will pop this error up shortly after the transfer starts.

Code:
There was an error copying the file into smb:// PcName/Folder/Folder

Details:  Connection timed out

you have a space in front of "PcName" -- is that a typo? because that looks like it would cause a failure. you also don't say what method you're using -- smbclient from command line? nautilus file browser? konqueror file browser? There are several different utilities that will perform smb actions, learn which one you are using and give some details on what steps you are taking to get this error.

as a test, try
Code:
smbclient //pcname/folder/folder
or
Code:
smbclient -L //pcname
to see a list of shares available on pcname
