Sharing files and folders via the LAN (Closed)

After a clean start was still having problems so have opted to stay with mint 17.2 mate 32bit system.

Okey dokey … weird that it works for me though.

I wonder if it’s something that only applies to the 32bit version (I’m using te 64bit version) … was the second install also the 32bit version ?

Yes it was the 32bit version the reason for installing a 32bit version on a 64bit computer was to run a web based web-conferencing software package.
