LAN between two FC4 computers


Hi there,

ich have two computers with FC4 connected via a netgear router. The network seems to work, since both can access the internet and can "ping" each other. Today I discovered the "Local Network" feature of Konqueror (typing "lan:/" in the location bar). How can I access the other FC4 computer's files? It only shows me 127.0.0.* IPs, but the other computer's IP is 192.168.0.3.
When I simply type "fish://192.168.0.3/" in the location bar, it says: "No connection to 192.168.0.3". On both computers the LISa daemon is running.

Thanks, max

In order to share Linux-based filesystems across your lan, you'll need to use NFS. Each host will need to export its filesystem(s) to the other (man exportfs), and each host will also need to mount the filesystem(s) exported to it (man mount). You'll have to modify selinux (if it's enabled) to allow NFS mounts (man nfs_selinux), and you'll need to modify iptables (the firewall) to allow NFS traffic to pass.

Hi jcliburn, thanx for your answer!
That sounds way more complicated then I expected. I simply want to exchange some files. Therefore I tried to connect the other computer (sshd is running on both computers) via ssh with the command
Code:
$ ssh max@192.168.0.3
ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.3 port 22: No route to host
What's wrong with this?

Thank you, max

You've got a firewall blocking port 22 on 192.168.0.3.

Thanx, now it works!
For those with the same problem: Just run /usr/bin/system-config-securitylevel and check the checkbox of "SSH" (under "Secure Services"). Then you can access the other computer's files by typing "fish://<ip>" in Konqueror's location bar (where <ip> is the other computer's ip-adress).
