I have a shared folder on a ubuntu server. On the Windows 7 PC I can see the Server name in the Network and when I open the Server I can see the shared folder.
server name: Ubuntu
folder name: data
user name: user1
When I try to open the shared folder I'm asked to enter the username and password.
I tried: Ubuntu\user1 and the correct password
The access is denied.

Can anyone help?
