I'm trying to copy my files from my Vista laptop to my 7.10 desktop, so that I can eradicate Vista once and for all.
For reasons I won't bore you with i'm going to wait to upgrade to 8.04 on the desktop until after i've got the laptop stable.
I've connected the two PCs with a crossover cable, setup SAMBA and sharing and can see the desktop in vista, access my shared folders, and read and write to it.
The desktop can see "Windows Networks" but the folder is empty.
I presume the problem is at the laptop end (which is yet another bloody reason I want rid of Vista), but for the life of me I can't work it out.
I've turned the network onto "private" so that it's discoverable, set all the sharing options I can find to "on" and turned off all the password ones.
Anyone have any ideas?
