I am moving jobs and I want to get my docs, pics and stuff from my work box onto my home box and hopefully learn something new in the process
by doing it over the net.
Both machines run Slackware 9.1, and I have root access to the work box (and obviously home one too)
I know the IP address of the work LAN and also my work machines internal address as given by ifconfig.
I have pretty much no idea where to start. I haven't ever done any sort of remote log-in so I'd like to find a guide telling me how to do it.
I also don't know how to set up the work machine to allow a remote connection, what kind of extra software I'll need if any, if I need to run some sort of server on the work machine etc etc.
Many thanks for any links and suggestions
ps I would ask our sysadmin for help but he's away for a couple of weeks and his assistant only knows how to re-install Windows, actually I think that is all the assistant ever does
