I installed SWAT with its wonderful GUI (with all of its 8 buttons)on my ubuntu-server machine the other day. I have a small network of 4 machines at home. In addition to my ubuntu-server, a windows XP, a debian laptop, and also an ubuntu-desktop machine.
But still I am unable to share files between my ubuntu-server and windows XP machines.
I have never done networking before, not even between windows machines, since I only have one windows machine anyway, but this time around I am trying to learn to do networking between these two machines first and eventually between all 4 machines.(Win XP and ubuntu-server)
What am I doing wrong? before installing SWAT, I had struggled with samba file (smb.conf)for a while and failed to produce any results. I still have a copy of my original smb.conf file which I saved under smb.conf.copy name.
