    Which password?


    I have a PC running Ubuntu that is sharing a folder on my local network. When I try to open that folder in Windows 10, I am asked for the network password:

    My question is which password?
    I have tried my smbpasswd on the Ubuntu computer, I have tried my Ubuntu login credentials and I have tried my Windows password. None work. So, which password is Windows looking for?

    It would be the password and username that you have setup on the Linux Samba server not Windows.
