For linux you can use ssh and forward you desktop. For windows look at VNC.

File sharing would be windows networking for windows and nfs or windows networking for linux.

Check out VNC and Samba.

Open yast on your computer and look at network servers. If anything is not installed you can install it through yast.

For the ssh client open a shell and type this..

ssh loginname@hostnameoripaddress



If the login name is the same as yours you can leave off loginname@


If you installed it you should be all set, try to connect to local host to test your ssh server..

ssh localhost

If you have installed it type this..

vncserver

Set the password and your all set on the server. For the clients use this command

vncviewer


You can also configure Samba and NFS through Yast Network Services if you have them installed.


Depending on your desktop you may have a Remote Access section under System to help setup the desktop sharing.

The app is KDE Desktop sharing.


Vnc works on many platforms and if you check out their website you'll find some good info for running it.

If you have a web server you can use any broswer to access your desktop over the internet or network if you set it up that way.

That way you do not need a client installed to use it.

We need more detail.

Type of hardware that's not working? Linksys, 3com, etc.. Model Number Board revision.

Version of SuSE used.

If the hardware was recognized you would see it in you Network Configuration in Yast. Therefore you may need certain modules, or maybe you need to load them.
