Hi,

I have searched and found loads of threads on how to access my linux from windows, but not the other way around. I can see the PC, but when I click on it I see nothing. Also, when I try and add a network place it fails. Please help me access my windows docs from Linux.

When you try to set up the share you might need to play with some of the settings/options when you do "Connect to Share".

For me to get it to work I had to leave some settings blank so when I connected I was prompted to put in domain\username and then my password.

What options? I goto Dolphin -> Network -> Add Network Folder -> Microsoft Windows Network Share. Then I only have 3 options and I have to fill them all in.
