Share files

Share files

A very easy way to share files between 2 linux pc's in Ubuntu is by using ssh (I installed open-ssh client + open-ssh server).

Install it first on both computers (synaptic) and after that select from "Places" - "Connect to Server"
Choose service type "Custom Location"
For locations "sftp://name@servername/home/name" fa "sftp://tlinux@"
Name to use for connection "choose whatever you want" fa "tlinuxlaptop"

Now you need to put in your root password and voila, you can access the files you want. It's realy easy to use. The only "problem" is you can't use the files without copying them on your client. If that's the thing you want, you'd better choose nfs or samba.
