I have 3 computers in the house, all linux in my case. I set up samba on my server, created a samba share folder and figured out how to modify the fstab file on my laptop so the shared folder auto mounts on my desktop. So now all of my computers have the same shared directory on the desktop and I just drop files in there and have access from all computers and also from my android phone.

It did take me some trial and error as I'm still a bit of a newb but now that it's set up it makes life simple. If you google setting up linux samba shares there are a lot of tutorials on the subject

Grr now I have a connection problem again

Since I am having problems with this I really doubt that I could do that even though that probably would be the best setup for my laptop and 3 other pCs and my media player.
Butr right now I justr want to figure out how to do this between my laptop and my Linux mint media PC hehe.

Samba is the way to go.

I understand your feelings. I am pretty newb myself and I'll struggle for a little while to learn how to do something but sometimes I just want to get things up and running even if it's not the way I originally wanted and then go back and figure out the other way later.

So, I suggest doing whatever is easy for you now but don't give up and think you can't do it a better way. Samba is pretty easy to set up and there are plenty of tutorials that will pretty much let you copy and paste commands into the terminal to get everything set up. Get is set up the easiest way and then go back and figure out samba set up at your lesiure

I have know problems learning it is jus tit irks me when one minute I can ssh 192.168.0.11 then later on I cannot, at first I thought that maybe the pc went to sleep so i had to walk all the way to the other room to see and it was running .

ok so after I drank half a pot of morning coffee and triedthe exact same thing it all works so thank you all for the help I will opefulling now be able to do the same with connections between my pivos media player and my pc and laptop but tis is pretty much solved for the most part.

Where did 192.168.0.11 come from? I thought the server resided at 192.168.0.14?
