Temporary Solution To Samba

I don't have to transfer files from Windows to Ubuntu Linux very often, so I can email them over.

Samba has got too many config options for me to help you via the comment boxes.

But if you just want to occasionally transfer files Windows -> Linux you should just use ssh. It's easy (sudo apt-get install openssh-server) to set up on Ubuntu and on windows you can use the famous putty family of windows ssh clients. Download pscp.exe from and from a windows command line:

> pscp.exe user@ubuntu-box:/home/user/windows_files
