    So how do I set it up? Is it even possible? [​IMG]
    I'm really confused on what to do, how do I get it working?
    If it isn't possible, how do I get samba working on Windows?

    Strange. Generally your IP address would be in the form 192.168.xxx.xxx. To find out, follow these steps:

    1. Go to the computer with the "My Movies" folder and go to start>run and type "cmd".
    2. Type "ipconfig" and press enter.
    3. Look next to "IPv4 Address............" and you should see your IP address.

    That's what you need to type in your samba share config file where you have written "10.0.1.2"

    EDIT: Make sure your folder is shared too.
