Building a home network with 2 Linux PCs and a D-Link


Hi everyone,

not sure, if I should put this in the newbie Forum, but since my problem concerns networking, I'll put it in here ;o)

So, I want to set up a Network at home, got one PC with SuSE 9.1 Pro, and a Laptop (Wireless - up and running) with Fedora Core 2.... all connected to a D-Link router....

Can someone please explain me step by step, how to set up my home network?

Thx in advance!

If they're both connected to the router simultaneously then they should be on the same network. If you use Konqueror on SuSE 9.1 then
fish://other_machine_ip_address
will give you an ssh connection - login as a user on that machine and there you go!

If you want to set up one machine as an authentication server etc and manage all users then you need to have a look at NFS for example or if you have Windows machines as well then Samba server will do for them and you can also use it for linux as well.

Have a look at the 'Heterogeneous networks' topic in your SuSE helpfiles.

Good luck.

Well, thx, works perfectly! )

So how do I add this to Konqueror, in order to have permanent access on the other PC?

For example, if music files are located on one PC, and I want to edit and listen to them with the other....

This means, that some directories should function as somewhat a network device like in Windows... I want to have access on these directories...
So I need to mount these directories?
what is the command to do this?

mount -t ??? -o username=foo, password=bar //ip_address /mnt/dir ??

without -t mount uses smbfs.... isn't the case as it is another Linux running...


I'm lost

if you want to mount remote drives then use NFS server on the remote sustem and export that drive. Then use NFS client on your machine to connect. Have a play in YaST. Only point to watch is that if you make a remote connection permanent then it will try and connect when you boot your machine. If the remote machine is not switched on then your machine will wait a very long time to connect. I didn't stick around with NFS long enough to sort that out as it's network model didn't suit what I wanted to do.

I use Samba server because I have a mixed Windows/linux network and also because I have one main server with clients all linking to it.
