http://ubuntuforums.org – I have a share on my home server with all my music in. When I go to a windows PC ( Windows 7) and go to network I can see the share, but when I try to connect in ubuntu by going to places>network>windows network I get the error Unable to connect Failed to retrieve share list from server however when I try the connect to server option and specify the IP address its fine. I have tried this with the firewall disabled with the same results. I am trying to get my family to use ubuntu and I don't want them to have tp specify an IP address. Any ideas? (HowTos)
