I have 3 computers, all Ubuntu 13.04. I have shared folders on all which I would like to be able to access on the other computers. For some strange reason the 3rd computer can only see its own shared files. It fails to see the other computers (under Nautilus). The computer is connected to the LAN because it has no trouble printing on a shared network printer.
The other 2 computers see one another and can access all of the shared folders (excluding those on the 3rd computer).
