I now have 3 12.04 pcs' on my network and each will list the other network names when 'Browsing the Network' . When the macbook was OSX it could access shared shared folders and files with all the rights I enabled. 

When in Linux however the browser reports 'Failed to retrieve share list from server'. This is consistent weather I try the named pc directly or through the 'Windows network' .  Samba installs as usual I think but if going linux to linux do I need Samba ?  Is there a server app I still need to install ?
