    There's not a patch for this?

    A big thankyou to Stormbringer and others here. You have no idea the trouble I was having trying to set up browsing between XP and Ubuntu. I was at the point of going back to Microsoft entirely. That hurdle is over now thanks to the information in here.

    I've already configured samba to run with one windows laptop. However, I just bought a new (windows) computer and I can't see the samba shares in the new computer. What should I do?

    I don't have a lot of experience with this, but maybe you just need to change its workgroup to the one you defined in /etc/samba/smb.conf?
    Also, check the firewalls.

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

    Great HOWTO. Very helpful! I have followed this howto and I am now able to access the files in my ubuntu computer from my vista computer. I can not however access files in my vista computer from my unbuntu computer. When I try to access my vista computer from my unbuntu (Places/Network), I see nothing as if nothing was being shared on my vista computer. I have disabled all firewalls on my vista computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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

    I did everything to my smb file that I read. I have it working except I cannot see it from my Windows computer. My samba server cannot even see the files on my Windows computer either. I both machines can ping each other, and the workgroup name is the same as each other. I see on my Windows machine that the netBIOS over Tcpip is disabled.

    What do I need to do to have active networking for my two home machines now ?

    Help please.
