View Full Version : [ubuntu] what's my Samba share user name and password?

April 9th, 2009, 12:26 AM

I'm booting off live USB and when I try to access Ubuntu's shared drive from Windows I am asked the user name and password, which I believe were not entered initially. How should I set up the user name and password so I can access the shared data?

I think the password is set up by smbpasswd but how do you get a user name?

...ok got it:
# adduser USERNAME
# smbpasswd -a USERNAME
