I have 2 pc's running, one with linux (ubuntu 7.10), and one with xp prof. I'm already able to access my windows shares, but i don't get it to work to share files/folders on linux and access it with windows.
that's what i've done. (i did it with the gui, not the console way)
- i made a folder under media called "shares" (as user root)
- rightclick, "Share Folder"
- Share through: Windows networks (SMB)
- Name: share
- unsigned Read only
then i tried to map it with windows
Tools -> Map Network Drive
Finish and now it requires a User name and a pw
lets say the linux machines name is "lin01"
and i have beside root a user called "veri"
what is the correct username?
in windows you would use lin01\veri, but this way doesnt worked, it drops back to the pw check immediately
edit: when i use just the username "veri", i trys to connect for a few seconds, but the it drops back too.
hope you can help me,
