[all variants] accessing a windows directory between windows and ubuntu

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I have a question about accessing a shared file directory. on windows, if i enter a path, i can access the directory and view the contents (mostly printers) on ubuntu when i put in the path as smb://[path] it prompts me for a username and password. It won't make sense that i can access the directory without credentials on windows while on ubuntu credentials what could be the reason? (HowTos)
