http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey all, I had my PC set up nice and then i used computer janitor to remove things. I forgot to tell it not to mess with my settings so i have had to redo everything. I have samba installed and it can see my PC over network but it asks for username and password. My windows PC has full access to my Ubuntu folders shared over Samba. I have the workgroup set to WORKGROUP as is correct in smb.conf and i have added a samba user with the same name and password as both machines (they are the same). I do not have windows live sign in assistant installed, however i do have windows live essentials 2 (HowTos)
