Question Using a a wired network across different platforms. i.e ubuntu to windows 10 & winxp


I have a wired and wireless network setup between offices. Two pc's run Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04. three pc's run windows 10 and one runs good old XP.

I am unable to connect to any windows pc from the ubuntu but the windows 10 pc's can access a shared directory on the ubuntu.

Any ideas?

Distro. ubuntu 14.04 12.04
ethernet
BT HUB main router
netgear hubs

To get this straight, you are referring to SMB, Samba, Windows Drive Share when you say connecting and accessing right?
