How to network two different GNU/Linux OSes?


Hello, good afternoon.

Does anyone here knows how to network two different GNU/Linux OSes?

I have a notebook and desktop computer here. The Operating System of my notebook is Easypeasy and my desktop computer is Linux Mint. I already install the Samba on both computers. I could open the folders that I shared under my Documents. But when I tried to open the shared folder under the NTFS drives or even the drives itself (of my notebook or desktop computer) it will prompt an error.

This is the error: "Unable to mount location. Failed to mount Windows share."

Thanks and God bless.

Sharing files is not networking. Once the machines can ping each other then networking is done with. Moved to Linux - Software.

Hi,

you don't have to use Samba if you don't have Windows. You can share Linux-folders via NFS. Look here: http://www.linux-tutorial.info/modul...ent&pageid=150 or google for NFS

Hello markush, good evening.

Looks like using NFS as a protocol of file sharing is difficult. Lots of commands to be inputted. So I just used samba since it's a user-friendly.

Thanks anyway markush.

Take care and God bless.
