I have a ubuntu server with some music on it. I would like my windows 7 and windows 8 laptops to access this music through windows explorer. If I can view them on windows explorer, my music programs can probably find and play the music.
Right now, I have samba installed on my ubuntu server. I went through the config file and changed everything, so all users can access files. (I think... I know I changed the setting when I was installing my printer, but I do not know if there are any additional changes I need).
On the Windows side, when I open windows explorer, I see Network Infrastructure: Molecule. (Molecule is the name of my ubuntu server) If I click on it, it takes me to a webpage (IP address: 192.168.1.1) and asks me for a password. This obviously does not work since my ubuntu server ip address is actually: 192.168.1.119 .
If you have any tips to make my ubuntu server appear in windows explorer with the correct ip address, and super accessible, I am all ears.
