    So you have Samba installed and you have the "dev" samba files installed on your xubuntu machine? I know, it sounds weird, but I needed the dev files for some reason to be able to connect. (This was before my current issue which I won't get in to).

    Do you have the same password for the windows and xubuntu machines? I do believe that is necessary.

    Have you set up something to be shared in the windows pc?

    They both have the same workgroup name?
