I want to share a folder in Ubuntu 16.04 to windows 7. I followed the guide at below link but no luck.
Windows 7 cannot discover the shared folder by its own, but when I type "\ubuntu hostname\", I can see there is a shared folder from ubuntu, looks good.
But when I click the shared folder in windows 7 to login with Ubuntu login, it failed.
Login: ubuntu hostname\account name Password: my ubuntu account password
When I check the log file "log.bmdb", there is an error "Failed to register/refresh name WORKG<1d> on subnet"
"WORKG" is the workgroup name of my window 7 server.
I'm getting lost what caused this problem. Is it a DNS server issue? Do we actually needed to configure a DNS server on ubuntu in order to use SAMBA?
