    I need to access my media server, and in windows all I have to do is go to run, then type in the iP address (Run->\\\public) and it opens my server in a new exporer window.

    How do I do this in Ubuntu?

    Fairly sure you can type in the address bar of the file explorer. Haven't used any GNU/Linux distros in quite a while though.

    iirc, to mount a network file system in linux/ubuntu from terminal: mnt \\server\\folder, then it should be in the directory path of: /mnt/folder

    but it's been about a year since i messed with networking under linux, so i can't guarantee the info is 100%

    just in case menace's solution doesn't work, but ubuntu's file explorer is probably smart enough to recognize network path's in the address bar.

    Thanks guys, I got it now!

    All I had to do was go to the "Home" folder then select network, and my fileserver was actually already listed there somehow!
