I want to share a folder.
I went to the Documents folder, right clicked, turned on sharing, gave it a name.
Nautilus installed Samba and said it was working.
I navigated to the “Other locations” area and found my computer’s name.
I clicked into that and found the share.
Clicked that and it asked for an anonymous connection or a registered connection.
I tried both and both times it failed. I can’t connect with any machine on the network though others can see it.
What’s happening? I’ve restarted the computer but still the same. A constant request for password each time I enter and try and connect.
