I am using Ubuntu 11.10 on both of my PC's.
I wanted to access PC2's shared directory from PC1. So in PC2, from nautilus file manager, right-clicked on the directory that I want to share with the other PC, and clicked on "Sharing ..".
It asked me to install Samba - which I did. Then I was asked to restart - which I did. I had to do the same steps for the other PC also - which I did.
But after that when I clicked on "Browse Network", it showed "Windows Network". Double-clicking on it shows "Failed to retrieve share list from server".
Later I installed GSamba and simply went with the default settings. I did this for both systems. But still I can't access the other system from Network.
May be I am missing some steps here. Need your help please to solve this.
Thanks in advance.
