The PC or server needed to be accessed is on a network that runs windows xp and the application that I'm trying to get to access the server application on the network runs on a machine the latest ubuntu. I'm don't quite understand what you mean, or where to go to what you mentioned. any step by step way to get the windows app in wine to access the network pc? I'm a bit new to this.
