I have built a new system computer with WIN 7 as the operating system.

The work group on the New Computer is --- WORKGROUP
On my ubuntu 8.04 server the work group is ---MSHOME.

I want to change MSHOME over to WORKGROUP. What do I need to change on my server to enable these 2 machines to talk to each other?

THANKS in advance for your help.

edit the samba configuration file on the server

sudo pico /etc/samba/smb.conf
after all the preamble, the first setting under [global] should be workgroup=MSHOME - change that to WORKGROUP.
CTRL-O to save, CTRL-X to exit
restart samba

sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart
