Accessing shared directory in linux?


Hi,

I want to share a directory in my fedora core so i can access and transfer files from there to another linux box...
I know how it's done with smbfs when there's a shared directory in windows, but how in linux?

you can still use samba, but it's not ideal. instead use NFS it's vastly simpler and specifically for unix networking. just edit /etc/exports on the server and start the nfs service, and portmap too. see the exports manpage for details.
