How to see Shared Directories on 2 Networked Linux PC's

Suse 8.2

I had no response in regards to the S3 ProSavage Chip, so I will ask another question.

I have set-up 2 PC's with networking, both running their own Firewalls.

I can ping from one PC to the other using: ping address -a -w 10

And have 0% packet losses, great

I have set-up the home directories for sharing

How do I now see the other PC's home directory so that I can transfer files?

I need to, as one doesn't have a modem and I need get the downloaded drivers to it.

I wouldn't have thought that Networking 2 Linux hosts would be that difficult and yes, I use Networking at work with a large corporation that uses Windows Workstations.

If they are two Linux machines, easiest way is to setup NFS.

Many great tutorials found at or you can simply view the man pages by typing:

man nfs

As it has some good documentation on how to setup your NFS, etc.
