View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sharing files not working between two ubuntu 10.10 computers in the same wireless net

I read some tutorials and installed samba and everything they said so that I could share files between the two computers in my home connected by wireless. After installing samba I opened it from System>Administration. Then I selected add a samba share. On the basic tab I specified the folder I wanted to share. Gave it a share name and description. Then I checked both writable and visible. In the access tab I selected allow access to everyone. After doing that the other computer can see the shared folder but cant copy it and can't even see anything inside it. While trying to copy it says "You do not have previlages to copy" or something like that. Can anyone help me share files between two computers?

I have written a step-by-step guide to simple networking, using Samba, to get Ubuntu pc's sharing files with Windows & Mac PC's on my home network. It should help you.
