file and print sharing
I have a dual boot desktop running Windows Xp and Mandrake 9.2. I have a dual boot laptop running Windows Xp and Mandrake Community 10.1. Everything works fine when I am in a totally windows environment. What I am having trouble with is file and print sharing when both comnputers are in Linux.
The desktop has a Samsung 1710 laser printer attached to it. I can print from the desktop when I am in Linux. What I am having trouble with is that when I attach the network cable to the laptop I cannot see the files in my Linux home directory on the desktop nor can I print to the desktop printer from the laptop. I have a router that assigns addresses.
Is there a simple way to accomplish file and print sharing using the GUI tools in Mandrake? Am I missing something obvious? None of the GUI tools in Mandrake or KDE seem to accomplish my purpose. I've tried them.
Any help would be much appreciated.
