comment Help connecting to Windows Shares on 2003/2008 server Ubuntu 12.04
Thanks Lupp0l0 - After I wrote the question out I cracked it after a 4 hours of trying - !image - really annoying as in the help with ubuntu it assumes that you know what the syntax is - not helpful if you have come from a windows environment that users \\servername\C$ - the fact that the connect window already asks for the Domain that you log into , why would I think I would have to use username@domainname.int as its already asked in the "domain" section! Thanks for the help - hope this helps others!
