  • Was wondering if there is any possible way to have a Ubuntu machine connect to WHS so I can see my shares?

  • Yes. The open source equivalent to SMB is Samba, which I would assume you've heard of.

    As for how to configure your ubuntu installation to access an SMB share, try this , which was the top result on a Google search for "ubuntu SMB".

  • Windows Home Server (Windows in general) uses SMB for file shares. So just connect that way.
