Connect to shared folder on Ubuntu using Samba

This post shows how to connect a shared folder on a Ubuntu machine from another Ubuntu machine on the same network.

You can do it from the Files manager:
Files -> Connect to server -> Open Samba share


Note: The folder being shared should be shared appropriately as well. If you want anyone to access that folder, you can set it as follows:


Select the Share the folder option. This would install Samba service if you are sharing a folder for the first time.

Allow guest access to share folder and be accessible from other Ubuntu machines.
