    Linux to Linux networking

    Hi,

    So I am using one Ubuntu to box as my file share and I want to convert my 3 other machines to Ubuntu possibly as well.

    I can't seem to find how to create a non-GUI method of creating a linux to linux network connection.

    I have seen for other distros its /etc/exports

    Can anyone send me on the right path?

    I had a samba share but I took it down, since I won't have any windows machines connecting to the file server any longer.

    if you need no gui, you can try ssh. it is installed by default on ubuntu and gives you access to everything on your computer. i heard the computer is accessible trough file manager

    just type ssh hostcomputersip and give your username and password to use it

    Perhaps I am looking for a GUI to handle file transfers

    but I am looking for the network config file.

    Re: Linux to Linux networking

    Basically ... to re-cap

    I am just looking to administrate my network options myself to learn rather then using the right click create share option.

    the end result is I just want to be able to pass information to and from my linux (ubuntu hardy herion) server to my linux (ubuntu hardy herion) desktop.

    Anyone have information on this?

    Not a big networking expert, but ebox might make things easier for you:

    It does use SMB, but there is nothing wrong with that...

    What about NFS?

    People not using this?
