View Full Version : [all variants] Media streaming/syncing

February 4th, 2009, 11:59 PM
I currently have two computers running Intrepid, a desktop and a laptop. I would like to set up a way to store all my media on my desktop and access it on my laptop. Unfortunately, I am at college, and must accomplish all this within the confines of the college network.
I have thought about different possible solutions, but do not know which one would work best when I do not have control of the network. These include:
media server(had difficulty detecting upnp from laptop when running mediatomb)...i need a media renderer/ control point that can manually set ip address for this to work perfect
ssh mount(sftp i think is the most correct term)
file server(samba or nfs)
internet based media server(jinxora)
any other thoughts on the best way to accomplish this?
