home network-- Fedora 9 and Windows Vista


I want to home network my Linux desktop with my Windows HP laptop. The laptop's new from last August and the desktop is my own mid-grade from about the same time.

I've searched the how-to's and talked to Norton and let HP remotely access my laptop but no go.

Help?

Please expand on this? You want them to talk how? Networking wise? Open shares?

Easy way to access the linux box from Vista would be to install FileZilla client and then connect using SFTP (SSH in reality) and transfer files between them that way.

Other easy way would be to install samba on desktop, create a user with a password on the Vista machine, make sure the firewall allows internal traffic on your IP range, then just mount the share.

Smb4K

I tried using Smb4K to set up the home network and it says the share "//[my computer name]/User could not be mounted.

"Details:
mount error one= operation not permitted

refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

What port # do I put in Filezilla?

Smb4K now sees my other computer but when I try to click on any of the first-level folders I get this--

The share could not be mounted, Operation not permitted,

refer to mount.cifs(8) page
