Hello! I need to build a small server, for an office where its needed to share, an "Confidential Folder" and an "Public Folder". I thought to use Samba, but I need to give... [by jddc]
I have tried two ways for sharing a folder on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit so that I could access it on a Windows XP PC on the same switch:
1st: right-clicking the folder > properties > share > Share this folder and checking both "Allow others to create and delete files in this folder" and "Guest access (for people without a user account)"
I'm having two problems with this, but one may be causing the other...
I want a folder on my Kubuntu system that my wife's W7 system can access. I created one yesterday on /home, set it to be shared and then installed SAMBA. Success. From the W7 system, I could access the folder (and also my printers, an added bonus).
Today, I had to restore /home, so had to recreate the folder.
