I have 2 pc at my home so i decided to use 1 pc as a file server.
I installed ubuntu 8.04 on both the pc and installed and configured a samba share on my server.

the problem is that the shared drive on server is in ntfs format and i am able to access it by my laptop(windows vista) but not able to access the same drive from my pc(ubuntu).

I tried unlocking the firewall on both the pc but not worked. I am able to control my server using remote desktop from my pc.
