As per the op, if you didnt know something I saw that you asked him, so
what makes that any different to my situation, but instead of asking me,
I got a whole different thing altogether. Why is it that you ask one
person, and not another? Not directed at just one person.
I think in my origional message I talked about windows directory, when I
mentioned the Icons in Network. and not being able to mount on one. On
this machine I am using, its a windows machine, with my Ubuntu
partitioned. I can get to see the windows partition, but going to
Filesystem, but this machine cannot be found using the network. I asked
about using SSH, because it was something that maybe I might have been
able to use, but I could work out how to use it.
How do I get smbtree to even come up. Where is it? Maybe if I could get
that to work, I might get a reason why thispc wont share?
