    I just followed the entire thread, and still have no results..
    Perhaps I will have to disable ufw.

    Re: Howto: Fix Windows share browsing issues

    First off, Thank You for the excellent instructions. I did find that I had to turn UFW off altogether to be able to browse the windows shares.
    It is interesting that None of the remedies was necessary when I was connected to the network through a wired connection, I nedded the extra steps only when using the wireless adapter.

    Now to my problem. somewhere in this process, an icon appeared on my desktop that is labled "my documents on john.volume" where john is the name of a windows computer and my documents is a folder I have shared on it. this cannot be opened, deleted, renamed or moved. I does not appear in desktop when examined with explorer.

    Does anyone know what to do??
    My machine is a Toshiba Satellite laptop, running Ubuntu 9.04 patched as of yesterday, with motorola wireless adapter

    Do you have a serious need for a firewall? If you're connected to a router, usually that handles security well enough that you don't need a local firewall. Even in Windows, local firewalls don't do much other than offer peace-of-mind unless you have a direct connection to the internet.

    Either way, disabling the firewall will help with troubleshooting.
