Hey, I'm trying to transfer about 8 gigs of data from my Ubuntu laptop to my desktop... the laptop cannot burn anything above cd roms, so I'm trying to setup filesharing. i set it so that the laptop doesn't need a password to be entered, but when i try to access it via win 7 it says please enter your username and pw... so I do that, and then it says enter the user name and pw to access these files, and I've tried everything here, but I just can't get past this.

Best solution

In the Network and Sharing Centre, below where you can see on the main screen so you have to scroll down, is an option to tick so that users don't require a password. That's the change you need to make.
