On windows file explorer, I can see a folder on another machine by typing \\10.12.23.34\aDirecctory (that is a Ubuntu machine).

How can I do that on ubuntu machine? I try putting \\10.12.23.34\aDirecctory, it said Could not find "/home/mysuer/\\10.12.23.34\aDirecctory

Thank you.

It depends on how the folder is shared. I am assuming (since you said it works for windows) that Ubuntu is exporting using samba. I am also assuming that you are using nautilus or whatever they call the file manager on unity. So, if these assumptions are correct, using this address in the file manager should work:

smb://10.12.23.34/aDirectory

If you edit your question to be more specific, I will update my answer.
