accessing a shared folder on a server
Hello i'm a Linux Newbie..just started using RH9 and linux in gereral about a month ago. I have one question (well maybe two).
1) I have recently set up a server with e-smith on my old pc and i have RH9 on my new pc.
What i want to do, is to able to connect to a shared folder named user.info that i have created in the e-smith server. Under windows this is very simple i just go to Network Places and find the server there and then the folder.
In Linux how is this possible?
I've heard that this can be done with samba
Do i have to have a samba server installed on the computer with e-smith and a samba client on RH9?
And is there a way to view the computers that exist like in Network Places?
Do you have any other options as to connecting to the shared folder i.e ssh? is is better then samba?
Thanks in advance.
