Looking for advice on setting up FOLDER SHARING on an Ubuntu/Edgy networked system.
If you have tried this, can you tell me if I should install SAMBA or NFS or BOTH, under the circumstance that I have ZERO Microsoft machines on my home network ? ALL UBUNTU
Also, is it possible to get this folder sharing working under Edgy by using just the parameters as shown on the folder sharing GUIs without having to manually edit a bunch of configuration files and without using terminal line commands ?
The reason I ask is because I have tried this before and have never been able to get it to work unless I used only SAMBA. When I try with just NFS, none of the parameters I input into the GUI will seem to allow me to share folders over the network.
But I have been advised before that this is possible using only NFS. Is that correct ?
P.S. - Please note that I do NOT have a Ubuntu server setup, ONLY 4 Ubuntu DESKTOP workstation installs. Is it possible to do folder/file sharing in a peer to peer manner in Linux as it is in a Microsoft windows network ?
