Samba is a good choice for sharing files between Ubuntu and Windows computers. I installed Samba by following a tutorial in Create,Modify,Delete samba shares with system-config-samba(GUI) in Ubuntu Linux.
1. Install Samba server
sudo apt-get install samba smbfs
2. Make configuration ( I followed the guides in How to install Samba server on Ubuntu )
3. Install system-config-samba
sudo apt-get install system-config-samba
4. Create new share
For a test, I created a share of my Downloads folder.
5. Get access to the share folder from Windows PCs
I went to Computer ——> Map network drive, and type:
Then, I connected to my server successfully!
