newbie probs accessing ubuntu machine from windows...
I have recently bought an acer revo, on to which i have installed ubuntu full 32 bit and boxee. Everything is working great except one thing.
I have some folders shared on the revo ubuntu machine, however I cannot always access the folders or the machine from a windows machine on my network. The issue is strange because sometimes the ubuntu machine just pops up in 'Network' on the windows 7 machine and all works fine, but sometimes it doesnt show up at all, and even typing the computers name doesnt work either (ie \\name-pc).
im fairly new to ubuntu so any advice or things to try that people might have would be greatly appreiated.
thanks in advance!

solved this prob, setting the ubuntu machine as a DMZ in my router made everything work!
