View Full Version : [all variants] Sharing data on a network

June 18th, 2008, 10:09 PM

I have two computers on a network, each one connected separetely to my ISP WAN (fastweb.it). Which means each have a different IP and are NOT inside a LAN (inside a hub that connects to the ISP).

Is there a way to access files from one computer to the other?

SSH maybe? But then I have to enable it on both sides? How?

Is there maybe a GUI for this...? :)

And if they are both under a LAN would it make it any easier? :p

check this post (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=4956300&postcount=2) from this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=793308) if that is what you want.
This is only for sharing ubuntu to ubuntu tho... no help here for windows machines (you will need samba for that).

If this is not what you want, search the forums for a samba tutorial...

hope it helps :)

That's what I wanted!

Just after posted the previous message I returned to more googling and found this:


Which says exactly the same thing, written in other words. :)

Now my next quest is to get a dyndns working with fastweb, but I don't think I will find the solution here... :]

EDIT: I don't have access to the NAT router, so there's no way to use dyndns with fastweb :(
