I can't get my 2 Ubuntu installs to see each other, computer 1 and computer 2 in my signature. They are both running 10.10 and I can see the windows XP install on 2 from 1 but can't see Ubuntu even when it is running. I was running XP on comp 2 and Ubuntu on comp 1, I can transfer files from 1 to 2 this way but cannot when Ubuntu is running on comp 2, I just can't see it, I believe Samba is installed on both. Both pc's have internet so I know they are seeing the router, comp 2 is using a Dlink 802.11g wireless connection while 1 is hardwired to the router. I go to "Places" click "Network" and all I see is "Windows Network", which works fine when XP is running on comp 2, but I want to send files between the 2 Ubuntu's. Anyone have or know how to get this done or have a copy of "Ubuntu Networking for Dummy's"?
