Mint<->Windows 10 Local file sharing not working.

Postby ThePriest » Sun Oct 15, 2017 3:03 pm

Hi,

Trying to setup a local network between Win10 and Mint.

I installed samba (plus its dedicated gui... If that makes any difference anyway), I created my shared folders and... Nothing happens. I went through every info I could find online but still nothing. Any tips or recommendations?

Okay never mind. After two days of frustration I got it working. All it took was one more Mint system restart while the online guide was suggesting logging off and bk again......
