  • Can't share folders between Window XP and Ubuntu using VMPlayer

    Hi guys, i just installed Ubuntu 6.1 on my PC (using VM Player).
    My primary OS is Windows.
    I just Created a Shared Folder named "Shared" on my deskop and i did caught this folder, through Places >> Network Servers >>
    What i mean is that i can't share data between these two OS.

    Where i'm going wrong. Is it from disableing network service in my services.

    It is very important for me to share data between me real Windows Xp and Ubuntu

    Thank u very much from Albania, Tirana

          First of course you will need to ensure you have a network connection between the two machines...

          If that is working (firewal issues in XP are not blocking anything) then here is a
          quick tutorial.
