So in ubuntu i cannot see my laptop which is on, and i cannot see the TARDIS from the laptop under network. So i cannot create the client if i cannot even find the folder on the Ubuntu OS. any ideas or help is appreciated I am out of ideas and new to all this. Again my experience with linux is currently 6 days old from when i installed it on the 3rd.
There are a lot of questions here...First, what client are you using? Second, are the computers all on the same network (meaning they are all part of the same Homegroup name in Win7 and Network name in Ubuntu)? Which computer has the client, which has the HFM?
Sounds like it could be one of two main issues...either the computers are on different "networks" or the sharing permissions in Win7 (asuming that is where the client is) aren't set up properly to share with a non-Win system.
If it is the latter (and you are using the v6.xx client), all you have to do is right click on the folder that holds logs, select "Share..." You should get a box that says something like "Choose people on your network to share with" In the blank field type "Everyone" (without the quotes) and hit "Add." Next you want to click on where it now shows "Everyone" and select "Co-owner" and then hit "Share." I'm trying this on my Win Vista work laptop as I'm not at home to tell you exactly what it shows in Win7, but it should be about the same. This allows the folder to be shared outside of just Windows systems, otherwise, the folder only "shares" with other Win systems in the same Homegroup.
Let me know if this helps, if not, I can try to look at my Win7 and Ubuntu rigs and get the exact steps.
