    Thanks
    Make sure that samba is actually installed:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install samba

    No go. The password dialog just keeps reappearing.

    Code:
    If that doesn't work then double check for any firewalls or an anti-virus which may be interfering with the connection.
    Turned off all firewalls and anti-virus, Still no go.

    Any other ideas?
    Uninstall Live-ID sign in assistant, worked for me after about a week of trying everything.

    Re: Howto: Fix Windows share browsing issues

    I got problem with my samba... running on MM...

    I share a folder with guest access...
    but it cant be accessed from windows...

    when I share the folder without guest access, it can be accessed with an authentication prompt...

    of course with smbpasswd -a

    I'm so confused and confusing...

    this my smb.conf

    Code:
    #
    # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
    #
    #
    # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
    # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
    # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which 
    # are not shown in this example
    #
    # Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
    # commented-out examples in this file.
    #  - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
    #    differs from the default Samba behaviour
    #  - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
    #    behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
    #    enough to be mentioned here
    #
    # NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
    # "testparm" to check that you have not made any basic syntactic 
    # errors. 
    # A well-established practice is to name the original file
    # "smb.conf.master" and create the "real" config file with
    # testparm -s smb.conf.master >smb.conf
    # This minimizes the size of the really used smb.conf file
    # which, according to the Samba Team, impacts performance
    # However, use this with caution if your smb.conf file contains nested
    # "include" statements. See Debian bug #483187 for a case
    # where using a master file is not a good idea.

    Sorry, but your problem is the opposite of what this thread is attempting to solve. You'll get better results if you post a request for help in the Networking and Wireless section.

    Didn't do a thing for me. I still get a box asking for user name and password to connect to a domain for my Windows 7 shares. I can access the shares on the Windows 7 PC with XP with no problem so I don't think it has anything to do with the share setup or Windows Live, which isn't on the XP machine but on the Windows 7 machine. At one time I was able to access the shares with Lucid but since I went to Maverick nothing.

    With the new updates, I did have to enter the username of guest. I left the password blank, and selected the "Remember forever" option. On my network, the Windows 7 share folders show up as locked, but the files within them are not locked.

    You could also go to: places > connect to server and manually enter the Windows 7 share information.

    Doesn't work either way. Keeps trying to connect to a domain. Only using a workgroup setup. Could uninstall Windows Live I suppose to see if that is the problem but I like the Live Photo Gallery better than the Shotwell Photo Manager they put in Maverick.

    If you need "Windows Live", then you might still be able to get connected to the share by using the second link in my sig.

    Unhappy Re: Howto: Fix Windows share browsing issues

    I'm having serious problems with Samba. I can't access my Windows 7 desktop's shared folders on my Ubuntu 10.04 netbook no matter what I try.

    I've tried installing samba and smbfs, configuring Ubuntu's workgroup, installed ntfs-config, removed winbind, (on Win7) allowed lower password encryption and anonymous share access but nothing seems to do the trick.

    I can access Ubuntu's shared folders just fine from Windows 7. Even the netbooks's Windows XP can easily access the desktop's folders. But Ubuntu always just keeps asking for a password even though it accepts NOTHING.

    I've set up a new (non-admin) account on the desktop and I'm trying to use that username and pass but it never gets accepted, except on XP. Also the desktop's shared folders are on D:\ so they're not locked.

    Below is a part of my winbind log if it's useful. Does anyone have any idea what I should do? I'm running out of ideas.
