All I need to know; When I try to see files on my windows 7 machine, it asks for a username, domain, and password. I dont know what password its asking for. I've tried everything, same domain, username, but cant assign a password

And I'm afraid no one here will be able to tell you what
you did on your windows machine to enforce a password, or
what the password would be. Why don't you simply SET one?



Cheers,
Tink

Wins 7 got "open network sharing center"
"Choose homegroup and sharing options"


select your options at the end you'll see the group password,
As far as how to get that share that password with linux I don't know.

What I do know is that wins7 wants control of network and if you make mistakes it will stop some of your machines from accessing router.

Take care of wins machine 1st. Wins7 network

Quote:
Right click network icon
Open network & sharing center
Choose Homegroup and sharing options
Under create homegroup you'll get a password that the other computers put in to join the network,

Need to set up a regular share such as C. C$ is an administrative share. Best to avoid using those types of shares sometimes.

If you're talking abou the attached item at bottom, That is password to join that network. Wins 7 has a password upon installation, system default is it's not enabled, so you cannot access it's files. The 2nd 1 shows you more.
Once you get password look at attachment.

I could be wrong, but it looks like you may have two different workgroups. The samba config file needs to have the same workgroup name as the host. homegroup not equal to workgroup.

The example you saw was another pc on my network that I could join.
In general we have 2 networks working off 1 router.
