I'm pretty much a newbie with UNIX and I m having a bit of a difficulty connecting my Ubuntu PC with my Windows 7 PC via LAN.
First things first, I've installed samba and created a shared folder both via CLI and GUI and everything seams to be working.
On my windows PC I've set up all the network settings as they should be in Control Panel -> Network and Sharing center -> Advanced sharing settings.
Network sharing is working with my windows laptop and my Windows desktop but the Ubuntu laptop is not visible in my network list and my Windows pc's cant see my Ubuntu laptop on network either.
I'll upload my
smb.config file once I get in my Ubuntu laptop so you guys can see that as well i just wrote this first in case i'm forgetting to do something to make this work.
And yes, both my Windows PC's and Ubuntu PC are in the same workgroup.
