Changing computer name broke sharing

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Up until yesterday, I had a Windows 7 computer on the network, sharing a folder without requiring the user to log in, and giving them just read rights. However, yesterday, I changed the name of the computer.

Since this change, other windows machines have been able to access the folder as if nothing had changed. However, when I try to access the computer from my linux laptop, a login prompt comes up; this has never come up before. I've spent quite some time playing with "advanced sharing settings" to try and stop this coming up, but to no avail. I also can't get through the login prompt.

Since changing the name, I've not changed anything on my laptop other than installing a few apt-get updates yesterday. I can also still access other window computers with shares that haven't changed their names. Anyone know how to stop the login prompt from coming up?

How do you have the shares set up? With samba?

...The shares are set up with Windows built-in sharing center.

Problem was solved anywhere, problem was Windows Live. If anyone else ever had/has problem, read this.

I meant accessing the shares, but looks like you got it.
