  • Vmware Server :Folder Sharing between ubuntu(host) and XP (guest)

    Hi ,

    I have installed Vmware Server 2.0 in Ubuntu, and XP as a guest os inside the VM.

    I need to Share the Folders vice versa between ubuntu and XP without using samba or any external means.

    Is there any options for sharing the Folders between them.

    Let me know how to proceed.

    I have installed VMware tools.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Why not Samba? Doesn't this do it for you: http://2tap.com/2007/04/22/sharing-f...are-and-samba/

      Thanks for the update, but i dont want Samba, thats why I posted in the initial post as I dont want samba.

      The reason is I would like to use an existing feature if it is available like folder sharing in Vmware Workstation.

      Thanks

        I'm sure the only way you can do it is using Samba..

        Looks like i'm wrong

          Vmware Server does not support shared folders. only workstation does.
          You will have to find others means to access your shared files
