Enable Windows share in Ubuntu 18.04

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.
