    Re: HOWTO: Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows

    Unless you want to be able to browse stuff on your Windows computer. That takes a little more.

    I had it working fine with the original tut, but now for some reason I can't get to the shared folders in Windows. I find that really strange, as I can print to the printer on the same machine. I went to Places -> Network Servers -> Windows Network -> mshome -> DESKTOP, and got all the files from Windows. Now all I have is

    Sorry, couldn't display all the contents of "Windows Network: mshome".
    When I open "mshome". Odd, and I have no idea what is wrong. I can still get to the Ubuntu shared files from the Windows computer.

    Any ideas?

    great article, I'll try that as soon as I have finished my homework...

    In the bit where you add "wins" to the hosts: line, I have "hosts: files dns mdns". does that matter?

    that shouldnt matter, you are just adding wins resolution to your hosts file in addition to those others

    are you talking of using the windows machine as a "router"? Like, the connection itself goes through the windows machine before into the wall or whatever?

    i am having an adsl broadband connection in my amd semperon machine running windows xp and want to share it with another Intel celeron machine which has kubuntu dapper drake in it ,i want the internet connection on windows xp machine to be shared with kubuntu through any other means of achieving it so if u don't mind a router means the connection pass through windows xp before coming on to Ubuntu , if i am wrong ,then forgive me ,i am completely new to networking

    The best solution for this is to just get a router. They are not that expensive, and quite easy to set up - a lot will get you free help setting up and such. See the image for the difference... The router just spits the internet connection, rather than having to set up the windows machine to do it. It also means that you can expand the network...l
