    Ubuntu Server - File Share issue


    Hello everyone new here at this forum and with Ubuntu and i am liking it. Question that i have is i started making a NAS device and i am using Ubuntu server the latest version. I installed Samba etc. When i am on my windows machine i can see the folder but when i double click it, asks for username and password i tried the username i would use to log into my server etc. Not working. Is there a place where i can see what the user name is and password that is setup? I must be missing something. Thanks!
