  • Obaid you must be joking posting such trash as an answer! How dare you trying to score answer points on your nonintelectual efforts?! Is this a joke Obaid? I bet you exactly know what my problem is! I would have considered Samba if the file server admin allowed it to be used. Your link on he other hand about Windows machine shares contains exactly no answer to the stated problem, don't forward random google hits. Stop posting your thash under this thread.
