I'm unable to access a shared folder from Ubuntu 12.04 The folder is located on a WinXP machine, it is shared and can be accessed from another windows machine on the network. What I have done since now is THIS

Now I can see the winXP host name in Nautilus, but when I click on it, it retrieves the error msg : "Unable to mount location - Failed to retrieve share list from server"

EDIT : I have also changed the "WORKGROUP" to be in the same as the winXP...

What else need to be done? Thanks
