I am using lucid lynx, it is my only OS. I have a home network using samba with another machine using Windows 7 (I know, it is my wife and she is not ready to change to Linux yet) I just built her machine and went from Windows XP to Windows 7. The network was working great for over a year, then with the new OS I cannot get Windows to share. I can go from the windows to the Linux fine, but when I go from Linux to Windows, I see the machine and the folders that I have shared, when I click on one it says "failed to mount", if I physically mount it it ask for a password, (I have it set up to connect without a password) I set up myself as a user and try to use my log-in password, the window pops back up asking for the password. I tried my wife's password, no joy.
Windows 7 is a weird OS it wants to tell you what you should do and then does it for you. I won't let you do what you want, it does what it wants. Does anyone know enough about Windows 7 to help me with this one?
