    What does
    iptables -L -v look like?

    You see mine, I have no rules set

    Code:
    scott@scott-P5QC:~$ sudo iptables -L -v 
    [sudo] password for scott: 
    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT 3464K packets, 3761M bytes)
     pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination         
    
    Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT 0 packets, 0 bytes)
     pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination         
    
    Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT 2350K packets, 2209M bytes)
     pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination         
    scott@scott-P5QC:~$
    some people have to adjust name resolution order
    Why, I do not know.
    http://oreilly.com/openbook/samba/book/ch07_03.html
    Code:
    The global name resolve order option specifies the order of services that Samba will use in attempting name resolution. The default order is to use the LMHOSTS file, followed by standard Unix name resolution methods (some combination of /etc/hosts, DNS, and NIS), then query a WINS server, and finally use broadcasting to determine the address of a NetBIOS name. You can override this option by specifying something like the following:
    
    
    [global]
        name resolve order = lmhosts wins hosts bcast

    Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and add a line right under the workgroup line:
    Code:
     netbios name = raafat-780
    If you want to change the name resolve order then use this - right under the "netbios name" line:
    Code:
    name resolve order = bcast host lmhosts wins
    Then restart samba:
    Code:
    sudo service smbd restart
    sudo service nmbd restart
    Notes:
    ** Samba will use the host name as the netbios name by default but yours is 4 characters too long so it's invisible to everyone on the lan. It has to be 15 characters or less.

    ** THe default name resolve order has bcast last so setting it to anything that also has it last won't do much good. bcast should appear first.

    I think it is very easy to install an SSH server in Ubuntu and to connect to it from other linux computers with SSH or SFTP as well as from windows computers with WinSCP. If you are happy with password authentication (should be OK in a LAN behind a router with a firewall), you can probably use the default settings of the server. Public key authentication is more secure, but not quite as easy to set up.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/openssh-server.html

    "WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client, SCP client, FTPS client and FTP client for Windows. Its main function is file transfer between a local and a remote computer."

    http://winscp.net/eng/docs/introduction

    So if you feel too frustrated to connect with samba from Windows to Ubuntu, I suggest you try WinSCP - openSSH-server.

    Edit: Congratulations
    It seems I was too late, while I was editing this post, you succeeded with Samba
