View Full Version : [xubuntu] Sharing Files with Windows

November 24th, 2008, 01:57 AM
I have tried setting up a shared folder on both my windows and Xubuntu computers and I cannot figure out how to view the shared folder on the other computer. How would I go about sharing a folder between these 2 computers?

Have a look at the link in my sig, "Network Browsing with Thunar"
Hopefully it will help.

I can send files from my Xubuntu computer to the windows one, but not vice-versa, what went wrong?
