How i transfer data from window to linux

\015 Once apoinate time i change linux password after that time i can't transfer data\015

Answers :

Depending on your linux distrobution, you will need to check the /etc/samba or /etc/smb configuration file, within that file there will be a place to set your windowsfile sharing password. then you will be able to transfer data across the local network between your linux / windows machine again..

however, if you've actually changed the password for the linux user account that enabled the samba file sharing, you will need to either remember that password, or set a new one from the root account byt typing the following command in a terminal / bash / shell session:

\015\012Task: Set or change user password\015\012Type passwd command as follows>
\015\012$ passwd <user>

Output:\015\012Changing password for <user>
Enter new password:
Retype new password:
passwd: password updated successfully
NOTE: when typing the password, you may not see the password you are typing..
You need to replace <user> with the username you are changing the password for.
