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.
Can I suggest that it's not a very good idea cross-posting this query in three forums. It's going to get confusing keeping track of replies. The Linux forum is the best place as your problem is with setting Samba up on a Linux machine.
