    File Sharing Share Name


    I have a Linux and a windows PC and they are linked together by LAN and run off of the same internet connection. I can share the files on my windows PC and access them from my Linux PC but I can't access the shared files from my Linux on windows, it comes up with an error message saying share name not found, does anyone know how to fix this problem or change the share name?

    You might need to setup samba to access the linux shares on the windows PC. Checkout this howto for some info and pointers.
