Maybe I am missing something but all I want to do is be able to access and transfer files from one folder on my main computer to my htpc. Both computers are running Ubuntu 14.04. I followed the instructions on this video but I am not sure if I need to do something on the HTPC to access my Movie folder. I went into nautilus then Browse Network > Windows Network > Workgroup but I get an error and it won't let me access it. Is there something I am doing wrong?

I could not get it to work through samba but I used ssh and set it up that way and it all seems to be good. –  xmjsilverx Jun 5 '14 at 22:22
