I have properly set up a share using samba (as best I can tell because I can access the share with my Macbook by navigating to smb://192.168.1.14/share).
How do I connect to this same share called "share" from my Windows 8 desktop?
I've tried typing into my Windows Explorer address bar:
servername == the name of the ubuntu server
Windows says it "cannot access" the address so this indicates Windows isn't being denied, its just not finding it at all. There is no promt for credentials as I was given on my OS X machine.
I have not set
security = user or any other security settings outside
workgroup = WORKGROUP in
apache2 has been installed on the server and I can access the initial page by navigating to 192.168.1.14 in a browser.
sudo iptables -L results in:
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination
I have also changed the security setting noted on this question: Windows 7, connecting to Samba shares
