From new version of Ubuntu i.e. 18.04, we are unable to get windows shared drives. For using windows machine, we have to set SAMBA.

Following are the steps / commands for enabling windows share access.

=> To install samba-client type following command.

  • sudo apt-get install smbclient
  • sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.cnf (This command will open smb.conf file, and you can add following line just after workgroup = workgroup)
  • client max protocol = NT1

That’s it….You can explore network through explorer, or with \\ip address.
