networking


I have 2 computer both using 12.04 computer-1 is on the web plugged into a modem computer-2 is plugged into computer-1 with a crossover
can I get both computer on the web this way if yes then how??
can I move files from computer-1 to computer-2 this way if yes then how?
I've tried to read about this but get lost in the computer talk. I know if I was 7 years old this would have been easy but I'm 50 it's been 2 months now and don't have a clue on this stuff. so if you can help me. I'm going to need step by step instructions in English. thank you.

??

have no clue on what to do with that and seeing the words "randomly typing commands" is not something I'm willing to do. I tried something about 2 weeks ago and after it did not work,it took my 4 days to get it back on the web. thank you for tring. but I'm going to need step by step. I have leared that I have to change a ip addrss when doing some reading but again how and to what, I dont know.

thats why i use a live-usb so i have a nexus point to revert back to when things go awry.

the last post should be the only commandline that is needed (there are probably some easier ways). to get any realistic help i would post errors from those commands so that someone could research and provide some help.

you also need to know what network devices are which on each machine (ifconfig).

The following should help you get going.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In....28iptables.29

There are many methods to transfer files between the two computers like nfs, samba, ssh(sftp) and ftp. nautilus i.e. the file manager has built in clients for ssh, samba and ftp so it is only a matter of choice. ssh might be the simplest. Start the ssh service on one computer and login from nautilus on the other.

oh and also, i should started off by saying i think the the gnome network manager applet (next to the clock) has a built-in gui for internet connection sharing; it would be a good idea to poke around in there and check.
