I am trying to share files using samba from my Ubuntu 14.04 machine to Windows 7 machine which are connected to the same network . I have set up samba in my ubuntu machine, gave sharing permissions to the folders and modified the smb.conf file as stated by this thread Can't access Ubuntu's shared folders from Windows 7. But what I find is that shared folders are not getting listed under networks of my ubuntu machine in my Windows 7 machine
Below is the lines I have added in smb.conf for the shared folders
[Personal$] comment = Personal path = /home/local/aarish/Personal browseable = yes read only = no guest ok = yes public = yes writable = yes available = yes [Movies$] comment = Movies path = /home/local/aarish/Movies browseable = yes read only = no guest ok = yes public = yes writable = yes available = yes
Can someone please tell me how do I fix this issue and get the sharing from ubuntu to windows machine successful ?
