Can't find shared files Linux/Windows
Before installing linux here, i did a backup of my files on her pc. Now i want to get then back, but i don't seen to be able to access files on her pc.
Internet sharing works fine, i can ping her ip, the only thing i can't do is get my files back..
Thanks for the help and sorry for my english.
To work with Windows shares over a network, you need to have the Samba Client installed. Then you can use a dedicated Samba browser like SMB4K or LinNeighborhood to browse her shared folders, or in Konqueror or Nautilus you can type smb://<her_ip_address_or_share_name> and browse it that way.Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!
Thanks dude, that worked.
I can't believe it was this simple. lol.
