Can anyone help me please as I'm a Linux AND Network newbie?
I'm running Kubuntu 7.10 on a laptop and a desktop and also have a WinXP machine.
I want to set up a shared folder between the 2 Kubuntu machines to transfer working files etc.
Both Kubuntu machines can see the Samba network share on the WinXP machine (sorry I have no idea how I set that up! trial and error I think!!!) and I can transfer files that way K1->WinXP->K2 and the reverse direction but can't set up a shared folder between the Linux machines.
I can 'ping' each machine from each other - so they know they're there
I installed NFS Server and tried to make the folder as accessible/public(?) as possible under 'Simple file sharing' but can't see the machine anywhere in Konqueror but don't really know where to look for it - under /mnt ?
I also tried to mount the folder by doing
sudo mount -t nfs 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxxx:~/transfer /mnt/remotefolder
but best I get is a "Permission denied"
As I say I've tried to allow permissions for anything at all to connect - very dangerous I know! - but seems perfectly safe as even I as sudo/root can't seem to get in
I'm sure it's something simple I've overlooked, a missing setting, config file edit, tick box - whatever.
Any help would be VERY much appreciated
