Samba installed

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:

\\IP address\Downloads

Then, I connected to my server successfully!
