You need to make your Linux computer as a server by using Samba.

http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/...oneServer.html
If you want to authenticate the users from Ldap or Active Directory there are special instructions for them. Let me know, I successfully joint my Linux with a domain, share file and printer with ADS users. I will write step-by-step instruction on the how-to, because I had a hard time looking for instructions when I first started last month.

@ prayingtosky
Samba is used to integrate Linux/Unix Servers and Desktops into Active Directory environments using the winbind daemon.
The OP wants to connect to a linux PC from a windows PC.

Kind regards

I don't think windows has a command line ssh client like linux, but I can be wrong though.
You can however use putty to make the connection.

No, there are ssh clients and servers for windows also.
You need to use putty or another ssh client to connect to a linux ssh server.
Putty is just a grafical interface for a ssh client.

to use putty will be very simple.If boh computers on the network are linux then ssh will be ideal.
I have sean the file in /etc/ssh/ssh_conf but i does know how to use it.in my enviroment i am using fedora as well on client side.
