Question sharing file

hi everyone,

How can I enable files/folders sharing on OpenSuse 11.0? Also, how can I access those shared files/folders from a OpenSuse 11.0 system and a windows system?
Thanks in advance!

My suggestion would be to either run an FTP server or Samba server on the host computer. You should be able to install and setup Samba fairly easy and it will make the shared files and folders look like they are on a Windows machine. this makes it very easy to share with a windows computer.

To add to this, Suse's YAST has various modules to deal with network sharing. Look in the Network services section for NFS, SAMBA, and FTP modules.

hi guys! thanks for your suggestions! I was able to play around and setup file and printer sharing, now I'm able to print from my W$ndows pc to a printer on my Linux box. I think is now time to set up my first Linux server!! Wish me luck!
thanks again!
