How to make possible to access to shared folder on win7 machine by ipv4? as my linux machine needs it.

The problem is in fact that i can't access by ipv4 to this folder even from this win7 computer, like \\\Shara, only with name \\Comp\Shara or ipv6 \\ipv6\shara

Your Linux machine does not need it if you configure it correctly. – grawity Jan 26 '12 at 15:20

To be honest I would use its DNS name e.g \\Comp\Shara.

Or try changing the bind order of the NICs.

  1. Go to:

    Control Panel → Network and Internet → Network Connections

  2. Press Alt

  3. Go to advanced
  4. Then to advanced settings
  5. At the bottom, select any entries for IPv4 and move them to the top.
