View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to access files and folders on Windows XP box across network using Ubuntu 10.04?

October 18th, 2010, 08:53 PM
I don't need to get to the Ubuntu box or files across the network using Windows, but I need to access and use files on a Windows XP box across a network using Ubuntu 10.04 which is running on another box.

Ubuntu sees the Windows Network, but cannot open it or access it or see or use the files etc.

I read something about Samba but I need a step by step both for setting up the Windows XP machine to make the files and folders available to Ubuntu across a network and for getting to and opening them from Ubuntu across a network.

Is there something that has all the steps in order?
