Here's what's happening. I have one PC (morpheus) on which I've chosen to share a couple of folders in the home directory. The folders show the "Shared" icon in them and are chmod 777'd. I can access them by going to Dolphin -> Network -> Samba Shares -> Workgroup -> Morpheus -> Foldername ...
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 running Ubuntu v10.04 with a wireless card. My desktop is a Dell Optiflex running WinXP. The desktop is connected via ethernet cable to a Linksys wireless router. Certain folders on the desktop are set for sharing. Up until early last week I was able to access the desktop folders from the laptop with no issues.
I want to estable a openVPN connection on one of my computers. But I want to make sure that the connection is secure by filtering everything except for openVPN. Therefore openVPN will be the only way to access the internet.
First off I can see my windows network through the ubuntu pc but I cannot see the shared files on the w/7 laptop on my Network.
How do i set up the ubuntu machine to share folders? I get the shared folders option to become active but still get the "cant mount" message box.
Never used to be asked to enter authorization information to mount shared folders on the same desktop, but with F18 I do, even though the smb.conf is identical to the one I had on F17.
Can mount shared folders on other PCs (ande vice versa) on the same LAN without getting this request for authorization. The shared folders are on a Win7 partition.
