Can't find network
Using Ubuntu 8.04 and want to join my lan at home (2 more computers [Windows]) and a USB HDD. But I just can't find my way. Have opened
but still cannot figure out how to reach the other computers (I know their IP #'s and can ping them, but just cannot seem to add them.
Can anyone either refer me to a very basic linux network configuration tutorial or step me through it? TIA
Also may have a network place name incompatibility. Both of my windows computers shows Mshome for one area and Workgroup for the linux computer and the USB HDD, and unsure if this is a problem or one go them needs to be changed to the same as the other?
And, 'ifconfig' gives you the ip# of the computer you are on. Is there a shell command that interrogates all other devices on the network and returns their ip #'s?
