Kubuntu 8.10 and Samba Part 2

First you should check part 1 here: Kubuntu 8.10 and Samba Part 1

There is not really that much left to talk about.

If you setup your samba and choose a folder to share, you just login to your Windows pc and then look at the network neighborhood, you will find your shared Kubuntu folder there.

In your Kubuntu machine though, be sure to check the "Visible check box" in your Samba GUI though or else you won't be able to see your shared folder.

In the Samba GUI, there is also an option to make your shared folders writable or read only.

Check it out. It is easy. You can do it with your eyes closed. :p

Not so easy if you have a ifrewall.

What is the port?

Is ANYONE going to be able to get to my files? How do you secure access?
