Connect to Windows Share from Ubuntu

When I attempted to connect to Windows Share from Ubuntu 12.04, I got this error message: "Failed to retrieve share list from server"

Found solution from UbuntuForums.org (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1082148&page=12&p=9762937#post9762937). Enter "smb://192.168.123.123" where 192.168.123.123 is the IP address of Windows Share, it bring up the list of shared folders on Windows machine.
Now, I just entered the user name and password to get in.
