So there is plenty of answers to the opposite question but I need to be able to access and modify my files on my Ubuntu machine from my Windows 7 machine.
What have I tried already?
It looks like I have Samba installed (somehow) but I've spent so much time just now installing packages to install other packages, fixing installs and finding out what and why I don't have parts of some packages installed to enable other things to be installed that I just don't know! (I'm a bit of an Ubuntu n00b in case you can't see...)
/etc/samba/smb.config has been modified to look like this:
#======================= Share Definitions ======================= # Un-comment the following (and tweak the other settings below to suit) # to enable the default home directory shares. This will share each # user's home director as \\server\username [homes] comment = Home Directories browseable = yes # By default, the home directories are exported read-only. Change the # next parameter to 'no' if you want to be able to write to them. read only = no ... # This might need tweaking when using external authentication schemes valid users = %S
sudo service smbd restart.
Now back in my Windows machine I try and map to my Ubuntu drive with
\\[my-machine-name]\[my-machines-admin-user]. The little dialog comes up asking me for a Network Username and Password so I enter the credentials aaaaaaand... it tells me that it is no good. I can see the user I am logging in with is not just
I'm tired, any help? There's not too much info out there on the web for this.
