Re: cannot access shared files
I'm assuming that you are trying to set up ubuntu as a samba server if so here is the guide... otherwise if you wis to have ubuntu as a samba client take a look at this
For setting up servers I'd recommend using Webmin to configure samba. Webmin is a web front end for configuring services on linux machines which can be done either locally or remotely from another pc on the lan, all through the browser.
I'm guessing you've done this already but just incase you haven't install the samba server:
then download webmin
sudo apt-get install samba samba-common
then install (which is meant to fail) and use apt to resolve dependencies.
from here just go into a browser, type https://<ip-of-server>:10000
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/wemin_1.610_all.deb
sudo apt-get install -f
log in as root or a user in the sudoers file and go to this page:
you can start about halfway down where it says "Using Webmin To Configure Samba"
Hope this helps!
