Re: help - Browsing network Issue after installing SAMBA?

The method I used before was just using Nautilus 2.20.0 > network >
Windows Network > select the server and brows from there. Never got
any error messages, it worked fine. Turns out I ended up doing a
reinstall and this time I didn't select the "File Server" option,
works fine now. I will post a new thread and ask how to go about
setting up file sharing. Thanks...
