View Full Version : [ubuntu] File & Desktop Sharing.

August 10th, 2009, 02:27 PM
Hi Friends,

I installed the Ubuntu 9.04 version on my desktop yesterday which was running a Windows XP. I have a wireless network at home & share screens & drives from other computers with Real VNC for desktop or screen sharing & used the windows software for File sharing.

I want to now know if i will be able to do the same with my computer again, having Ubuntu installed on it.

Please leave all your thoughts behind.

Thanks in advance. :KS

Remote desktop (works with tightvnc and realvnc):
System > Preferences > Remote desktop

File sharing:
Right click on the folder you want to share and select "sharing options"

Pretty much the same way it works in Windows.
