    Hello
    I have two win8 computers and one ubuntu on a small lan.
    If i try to filebrowse from ubuntu to a shared drawer
    in any of my win8computers a login is required and i have no idea
    what username and pw i should use...
    I have tried my hotmail account and all other i could think of
    but i just cant get in there.

    I can easily move files to and from a drawer in ubuntu and
    also between win8computers.


    1 Is it possible to get rid of that login?
    2 How can i find out what user and pw should be used?

    Greetings Zdubair

    No

    Getting Ubuntu to talk to Windows is very hit and miss because ubuntu is open code it tends to be behind the times... go here How to Enable File Sharing & Change the Workgroup in Ubuntu Linux for more details but understand the version of Windows and Ubuntu will change the steps needed.
