If you want to share files between your Ubuntu and Windows computers, your best option is to use Samba file sharing.
Samba is a free software re-implementation of SMB/CIFS networking protocol, originally developed by Australian Andrew Tridgell. As of version 3, Samba provides file and print services for various Microsoft Windows clients and
can integrate with a Windows Server domain, either as a Primary Domain Controller (PDC) or as a domain member. It can also be part of an Active Directory domain.Samba runs on most Unix and Unix-like systems, such as Linux, Solaris, AIX and the BSD variants, including Apple’s Mac OS X Server (which was added to the Mac OS X client in version 10.2). Samba is standard on nearly all distributions of Linux and is commonly included as a basic system service on other Unix-based operating systems as well. Samba is released under the GNU General Public License. The name Samba comes from SMB (Server Message Block), the name of the standard protocol used by the Microsoft Windows network file system. (Wikipedia)
Lets start then,
Install samba in Ubuntu can be from Gui tool (Software center of from command line )
First we have to install sambe server, In the termina type the command :
sudo apt-get install samba smbfs
Now we have for example to share this directory /share
lets make a configuration of the samba share :
#sudo vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
# /etc/samba/smb.conf # [global] security = USER hosts allow = [homes] comment = Home Directories browseable = no writable = yes [share] comment = Aminesoft File Server path = /share/ force user = samba force group = samba read only = No hosts allow =
Explain : every user connected to this samba server can connect directly to his /home/directory
First add a user (For example: aminesoftuser to the system, in the terminal type the command :
#sudo adduser aminesoftuser
root@aminesoft-desktop:~# adduser aminesoftuser
Adding user `aminesoftuser’ …
Adding new group `aminesoftuser’ (1003) …
Adding new user `aminesoftuser’ (1003) with group `aminesoftuser’ …
Creating home directory `/home/aminesoftuser’ …
Copying files from `/etc/skel’ …
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: password updated successfully
Changing the user information for aminesoftuser
Enter the new value, or press ENTER for the default
Full Name :
now make a samba password for this user with :
smbpasswd -a aminesoftuser
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
Added user aminesoftuser.
Now restart your samba server
sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart
Now if you have another computer with windows machine installed, test if it is working:
In your windows go to :
Start —-> run and insert //ip or //hostname
write your login and samba password

The Fedora Project is a Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported open-source project. It is also a proving ground for new technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat products and it is not a supported product of Red Hat. The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community in order to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from free software.
