12.04 better- but Samba networking not there yet

Asked by clombard on 2012-05-21

12.04 "sees" my home network and I can actually go to the files (occassionally)...but I can not move them or copy them or create folders between my windows network files It seems like unlimited messages appear.

Cant copy, write protected, no permission, can not create, file doe not exist, smb does not support protocol and on and on.

When I see my files on "readyshare" (hard drive usb'ed to my router) why can't I copy those files to my windows network...?

Smb does not work. Dolphin a bit better but also does NOT work.....!

With the windows machines on the same network files are created, deleted and go back and forth easily everytime!

thanks

Are you accessing the shares from ubuntu to another system. Or are you wanting to share folders on ubuntu to be accessed by other systems?

I have a small home-type "windows" network with four machines
(one Ubuntu and three windows xp and one 7). I have a hardrive attached
to a Netgear router (N600 WNDR3400v2) called "readyshare" connected
to the router by usb. I would like to share files in "readyshare"
across the network (read and write).
Ideally I would like to send files from Ubuntu to the windows machines
or/and to "readyshare". I could go through "readyshare" if that is
easier. No files on Ubuntu are shared with windows machines.
Ubuntu 12.04 was able to "see" the network and "readyshare" but could
not access either.
Ubuntu 11.10 doesn't see the network or "readyshare".
thanks

Just look at "My Computer" or "Network Places" on any Windows machine and you can see just how easy networking can be.
