How do I connect to Linux from Windows


Striking Master
I want to know how do I connect to a linux box (Ubuntu) from Windows XP? It keeps asking for a user name and password and I tried a guest login, my system's login, and the computer's login and have had no luck. Thanks in advance.
How are you connecting? SSH? Samba (i.e. file shares)?

The login should be the your account on the Ubuntu machine, if everything is set up correctly.

Yes, it is Samba (that is what it says on Ubuntu)
Do I need an extra add-on for windows to do the login or something? I can't login what so ever.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
