Newbie question


running MDK 10 on a pc and laptop.

When I 'ping 168.168.0.5' I get:
[don@desktop don]$ ping 168.168.0.5
PING 168.168.0.5 (168.168.0.5) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 168.168.0.5: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.075 ms
64 bytes from 168.168.0.5: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.067 ms
64 bytes from 168.168.0.5: icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.067 ms
64 bytes from 168.168.0.5: icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.065 ms
and it keps going like this.
The same happens with 168.168.0.10

Does this mean they see each other?

If so, what is the best way to move files from pc to laptop and visa versa?

I've been trying to use 'gftp' but it can't connect. I get the following:
Looking up 168.168.0.10
Trying 168.168.0.10:21
Cannot connect to 168.168.0.10: Connection refused
Waiting 30 seconds until trying to connect again

Any help will be appreciated.

The ping shows that the machines are able to communicate over the network.

How often you transfer files will probbaly dictate what protocol you use. Due to security issues I would probbaly stay away from ftp and use SCP instead.

If you constantly transfer files then NFS would probbaly be better, however if you have other microsoft clients then samba is better still.

Yes, this is very helpful, thank you.
I will only transfer files occasionally between pc and laptop.
Not on internet.

What is SCP? Is it on the installation disks?

Take a look at:

You can get scp with the openssh package from:
