Error updating the password file android samba fileshare
This is where you are going to do the nitty gritty. Most of these will probably already be configured correctly, but I'll tell you how they should be configured, nonetheless. This list might include "Administrator," your username, "Guest," and "Everyone." It might only contain a subset of that group.
If "everyone" is listed, simply click everyone, then click "Share." Voila, done.
The software is commercial but there is a demo version at least. Well, like I said I never had the issue of being prompted for a user/pass with my windows settings(..problem was that my smb sharing on my xbox through xbmc was not seeing anything when I looked(..gave me an error), but I figured it out through some manual IP/Gateway/DNS settings on both PC and xbox... Because for me I shared a folder on the desktop, but the share directory for me was NAME-PC\Users\Name\Desktop\Folder..it said my folder was shared, but I noticed that the Users folder had a lock over it..make sure there isn't a road block hidden some where, Win7 seems weird like that...
But through my search to fix my problem I saw your problem was very popular and could provide some suggestions... Another popular solution was to create a windows account named xbox password xbox given full permission sharing..then use said user/pass when prompted...
Cheers cyber7 (aka Aubrey) Is this in Addition to the OP's instructions? I tried the OP's instructions and got an error message..."Function not implemented".
I'm a new user to XBMC..got myself the Revo R3610 - I'm sure that info doesn't help diagnose my problem...but, =).
If I remove the entry pointing to C:\Media, it just keeps coming back every time I restart XBMC. On your WINDOWS 7 machine's services (Where your shares are): Turn on 1.
However, MS is making it more and more difficult to share using SMB in Windows.
You have to turn off Homegroup and do all sorts of other messy things.
I, personally, am connected using a LAN cable and have been provided an IP address by my router using DHCP.
If you prefer to use Static IP, there should be no real problem.
