Re: How To - Simple File Sharing in Mint

I went through that checklist yesterday, I went ahead and double checked everything but still have the same problem. Part of the sharing problem might be that as soon as I finished the mint share setups I went to the Vista pc and started the process of enabling client print and file sharing. Maybe Ms and Linux are fighting for control of the network! Now I can access Vista's public folder from Mint, but I still can't get past the logon from Vista to Mint. All I wanted was a way to share files between pc's, and I have that now so I'll probably just undo the Mint changes and use the Vista share. Thanks for all of your help!

I found these instructions very helpful. It's about how to mount a remote SSH folder using SSHFS. Simple, fast and efficient. http://howto.blbosti.com/2010/09/mount- ... d-and-gui/

And you would post that comment in a HowTo about Samba because:

** You didn't know this was a HowTo?
** You wanted to make enemies quickly?
** You wanted to increase your post count?

As far as the last one is concerned I can tell you that increasing your post count has no rewards. I was under the impression that after a certain number of posts I was eligible to win one of these: http://www.linuxmint.com/store_mintbox.php

Sadly, that was not the case.
