    network file sharing


    I apologize if this is not allowed here and will understand if it gets removed. I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction to resolve this. I need this for work. I don't want to have to buy a laptop with Windows just to do this.
    Thank you everyone.

    I am running UbuntuGnome 15.10 on my laptop. I need to connect to file shares on a Windows 10 Desktop on the same network. This desktop has one user. The user has it set up so that when computer is powered on, it automatically logs into the user's account without a password. I need to access a folder that is shared on that machine. When I attempt to access it from laptop, I am prompted for a USER ID and PASSWORD for the WORKGROUP. If I enter the user's ID without Password, i cannot access the folder. I have tried different combinations but cannot get access. I want to automount this when I log into my laptop as I need access to work.

    Seen this. Had to add a password to the user that had the share.

    Maybe someone here knows whether there is an answer to the no-password dilemma.

    Thank you for the information. Password was added and I can now get to the shared folder.
