I am using two Ubuntu machines and trying to share folders from one to the other. When I attempt to do this task on the server I get the following error message saying “Failed to mount Windows share”. I think you help me to fix this problem so please guide me. Thanks.
Can’t display location “smb://student2.lse.ac.uk/s_users/smithygf”
Failed to mount Windows share
Cannot display location trying to share folders on Ubuntu
Check the firewall on your PCs. It is usually the common cause of that issue when sharing files between ubuntu PCs.
Also make sure that the file or folder has sharing privileges for both PCs.
Check if smbclient is installed. It could be also the cause to the error that you are getting. Go to System > Administration > Synaptic and then search for smbclient.
