On the Linux box, I have Samba installed (though I understand it is deprecated on Windows 10). On the Win10 box, I have printer and file sharing enabled. The Thunar Linux file browser sees the Windows 10 machine (which is old and had Windows 7 on it) at:
Browse Network | WIN7-PC
and also at
Browse Network | Windows Network | WORKGROUP | WIN7-PC
In both cases I get a Linux dialog that says "Password required for win7-pc" and then three text boxes as follows:
Code: Select all
Username frank Domain WORKGROUP Password
I put in what I have recorded as the password for my account on the Windows 10 box (same password as on my Linux box), but the box closes, then reopens saying my login failed, and then I get to try again. I also tried a couple of other passwords, and even the PIN that I use now to log in to my account on the Win10 box. Nothing works.
From the other direction I get the same thing. Windows file browser sees my Linux box, sees all the printers on the network that are reachable from the Linux box, and shows a network icon labeled "Samba Share". When I try to open the Samba Share, I again get a Windows dialog box asking for a password. I gave it what I KNOW is the password on my Linux account, but again it fails.
Any help would be appreciated.
