how do i access other computers on network?


Hi there. I'm wondering if i can acess other computers on the LAN. I can get onto the internet through the router as can other computers so I'm sure there is a way to commuincate with the other computers. Also how do i share folders/files on linux so computers runnning windoze can access them and vice versa.

Thanks.

access? you can access a computer in a dozen different ways, telnet, ssh, vnc, rdesktop, ftp, http, rsync, proxy etc.. i assume you're just stuck in windows mode and take this to mean network shares? that's done via the smbfs file system interface "mount -t smbfs //server/share /mnt/server" for example, but more likely you'll just want to use "smb://server" in konqueror or whatever. to share files out to others, that's samba but from your perspective you'll probably just see it as a configuation tool in a menu somewhere.
