Migrated from Ubuntu Studio to AV 2 days ago and joined up here to guide me through a few things, but I seem to be struggling a lot with having my network recognise the AVL box. Ubuntu saw it ok and I have transferred files back & forth without any trouble.. but.. now my Windows network isn't able to see it any more.
I'm not any kind of Linux expert, only having had Ubuntu a short while, but am able to get around without causing much damage.
I have been looking at posts about Samba shares, but none of the standard linux commands seem to have any affect on AV. I do have a feeling that I'm in the right area, because my share to the network print service is also gone. (but it's just a guess and I hope you experts can put me on the right path)
My main system is a Win7 Pro box and the AVL PC has the same IP on the network as before, I also gave it the same name as before. Also I read that I needed to change the workgroup in /etc/samba/smb.conf to my existing. This done.. I restarted both machines, but still cannot see the AVL PC.
I guess I need some help please.. if anyone can point me in right direction, I would be most grateful.
