Windows 7: file sharing : w7 doesn't see my ubuntu share

07 Oct 2012   #1

file sharing : w7 doesn't see my ubuntu share


Everything is the title : I got 2 computers, 1 on Windows 7 Home, the other on ubuntu 12.04.

Samba (on ubuntu) is configured fine and is able to see/retrieve/modify windows filesystem but the ubuntu host doesn't appear in the "network" tab in Windows 7 ?

Does anybody know how to force it so that Windows 7 can see it ?

PS : I already tried without any firewall, same issue.

Thank you
