    If you go to Places -> Network Servers -> Windows Network -> <WORKGROUP> -> <HOSTNAME> -> Wherever you keep the files, you should be able to play them. Even if you can't write, playing them should take no more permission than copying them...

    I just wanted to toss in my 2 cents of appreciation and thank the author of this guide for their hard work into writing it up. This was the perfect guide to help me setup my Samba configuration!

    Thanks, again!

    ditto.

    finally working. after 6 hrs trawling this thread and google for a solution to a "can not connect" error on the map drives step I had the sense to install file and printer sharing. Surprised Windows didn't prompt me for this during the home network wizard. Anyway, seems to be working great (Windows as a guest OS under VMware server).

    2. Changing network settings in Windows

    Now we should let Windows know that there's a WINS server active in the network.

    If you had to change "wins support" to "no" above skip this step!

    - Click "START"
    - Click "Control Panel"
    - Click "Network Connections"
    - Find your "LAN Connection"
    - Right-click the icon and select "Properties"
    - make sure Client for Microsoft networks, and File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks are both checked

    - Select the "TCP/IP" Protocol and click the "Properties" button
    - Click "Advanced"
    - Select the third Tab entitled "WINS"
    - Click "Add"
    - Type in the ip-address of your Linux box
    - Click "Add"
    - Select "Use NetBIOS over TCP/IP"
    - Click "OK"
    - Click "OK"
    - Click "OK"
    - Reboot Windows

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

    Great writeup! I have been struggling with this for a time and it is helping...still some problems though. With this writeup my WinXP machines on the LAN can see the Ubuntu shared folder just fine and visa versa. The problem is that once I click on the share through a WinXP box, I am asked for a login and pw and nothing works.

    To be clear, I am sharing out an NTFS drive from Ubuntu to the rest of the LAN (either through IDE or USB connection, I've tried two different drives).

    When trying to log in with smbclient to the shared drive I get the following:

    tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME

    My smb.conf share info is here:

    Code:
    [MyMusic]
        path = /media/'WDC 300GB'/'My Music'
        browseable = yes
        read only = yes
        guest ok = no
        create mask = 0644
        directory mask = 0755
        force user = UNIX_ACCOUNT
        force group = UNIX_GROUP
    I tested the SAMBA sharing out my home folder and it worked just fine...is there some problem with sharing out an NTFS disk through Ubnutu?

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

    I agree with all the other folks who've praised what you did. Many thanks.

    Of course I'm here with a problem, one I couldn't find addressed in the many posts, although it may be.

    I followed the tutorial and have my windows machine seeing what I called "server1". I can start the mount process with XP, but when I get to the connect dialog box it doesn't accept my
    username and password. After it refuses plain "george" (username) It offers to try using the following "P390\george" as user name, where P390 is the machine name, but that doesn't work either.


    - I've checked that the user name (and password) are identical on both machines - including case.
    - I've restarted the windows machine

    I'm baffled what to do next to track down why it won't accept the login that is the same on both my XP and ubuntu (6.10) machine.

    Thanks for any help you can give

    Oops.

    I restarted Ubuntu, closing a dialog box in the process and now it works as it should. I shot too soon.

    Thanks again anyway.

    Nautilus in dapper kept giving error messages unles you manually set up the network share via connect to seerver using an ipaddress.

    I found a solution that actually works.
