    Question How to access Windows 7 PC in Samba network?

    First of all, sorry for my bad English, as it isn't my primary language.

    I have a home network with my Ubuntu box, a Windows XP box (sister's laptop) and a Windows 7 box (mother's PC). Never had a mixed network; with some effort I could install Samba and see the PCs (and be seen for them).

    All Windows PCs can access Ubuntu, create and delete files and folders in the shared folders like a charm, and I can do the same with the Windows XP PC. From Ubuntu to Windows 7, however, I can't; a window requesting credentials appears, but there's nothing password-protected accounts in Windows 7. There's just one user account on that computer, without password.

    How can I access this computer?

    OK, since no one could help me with this, I've searched once more and - hurray! - found this http://wiki.ubuntu-br.org/Samba. Although old, this tutorial helped me to access shared folders, but freezes sometimes during file copies. Nothing is perfect, anyway.
