How can I share files between a desktop PC( with Ubuntu) and a notebook(with Fedora) in the same network using samba? I tried to configure samba to both of them, but nothing? On Fedora I configured Samba using the GUI(add a new user, name the server and so on). Could someone give me a link to a good tutorial? I searched on google, but nothing good.
Try this on both machines.
First, backup the existing smb.conf file:
sudo mv /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.old
Then put this in /etc/samba/smb.conf:
[global] server string = Your computer's description workgroup = Your workgroup name security = user map to guest = Bad User name resolve order = bcast hosts wins client lanman auth=Yes wins support = yes include = /etc/samba/smbshared.conf
And then in /etc/samba/smbshared.conf put this:
[Desktop] ; user="yourusername" force user = yourusername path = /path/to/share writable = yes public = yes
