I searched for 2 hours and just got confused... please help me sort this out.
I have a Linksys BEFSR41 4-port router connected to a cable modem and 2 computers runing Mandrake 9.1 both happily connecting to the internet through the router. The router dynamically assigns ip addresses.
My /etc/sysconfig/network files looks like this...
And my /etc/hosts file looks like this...
These 2 files are the same on the other computer with the exception of 'HOSTNAME' where it = 'gecko'. I set a directory in the home folders as 'share' with SMB and I also setup the respective user accounts on the opposite machine. We can both see the other machine under LinNeighbourhood and we can mount the other's share folder. But when I try to copy a file to the mounted share folder I get ACCESS DENIED.
When will ever I stop being a nOOb
