ubuntu 10.11
« on: 2012-Feb-26 »
Is it possible to connect ubuntu 10.11 to a win 7 ad hoc?
I have tried million configs, there is no help on internet (by google) and it is a very frustrating thing.
Anyone knows how?

Damn I always put faith on linux...keep trying it every 5 years...to no good.
Always bad things all around :(

At least this last build got sound and most of the things going.

file sharing?
That's a simple checkbox when you try to share a folder, IIRC.
To connect to the windows PC, type "smb://" in the nautilus bar.

The idea was to use internet.

I have it connected to the pc by cable and I use a wifi to adhoc connection to other things in house, no router.
About everything connects, mac, phones... but ubuntu 10.11 won´t.

It has an option for connecting to adhocs, it sees the network, but won´t get in, keeps asking for password even though it is the right one. I have tried a bunch of different protection types to no good.

While googling the subject, I found it is a hard thing to get going and no solution, people usually tell to get the net on the ubuntu and them stream to other computers, which is actually not possible here as the ubuntu is on a laptop with 2 more systems and should be just for testing.

You could run a proxy on the Win box, then adjust proxy settings on the laptop?

this is a bit alien to me, but can research to figure it out.
Some people said if I leave the hoc without password(wep wap and so on) it works, I will check this out just for testing too
