I have 2 Ubuntu PC's and recently they can't see each other or share on the network anymore. Does anyone know how to network 2 Ubuntu computers? Both have internet access but no network access.

I get the following error when I try to browse the Network. "Unable to mount location. Failed to retrieve share list from server." I get this on both Ubuntu PC's

Thank you

I can see the computer when I smb://IP address but it refuses to mount normally. Argh! Help! I really don't want to have to type in the IP address everytime I want to access the computer network.
