I want to download data from my university local server, whose IP is like 10.1.2.3.
From Windows I could open Run..., type
\\10.1.2.3, and the local server window opens.
How is it possible to perform this task in Ubuntu?
Open file manger (Nautilus, for example), after press file -- connect to server and write ip.
Open your File manager. Open Dash and write
files or just press the folder Icon in the right launcher.
press CTRL + L on your keyboard or just press on Go -> Location from menu bar.
In the field on the top menu write : smb://IP-To-Connect
then press enter
Another GUI method
Open your home as above then go to
File->connect to server from the menu bar.
If you are using Ubuntu 12.04 and below
Windows Share From Type then complete the needed infor like username and password ...
If you are using Ubuntu 14.04 and beyond then just enter
smb://IP-To-Connect in the server Address field
and press enter
Easy Way to Open the connect-to-server
ctrl + Alt + T
Then complete steps as above
Ubuntu's default file manager is called
nautilus, however it is simply labelled "Files" in most versions.
As Vsevolod already mentioned, you can open the files application in order to connect. To do this click the 'connect to server' button in the left sidebar and enter in the information.
You might need to know what type of server it is (chances are it is a normal windows share
samba), so you could try typing in "smb://10.1.2.3".
Another way which I cannot guarantee will work, but you might want to try, is to press ALT+F2. This is the pretty much the equivalent of the Windows "Run..." prompt. Here you can type commands and the system will execute them. Try typing "smb://10.1.2.3" here and click on the result (should be named "10.1.2.3").
