how to play music from a remote system
I want to login into a remote system and want to play music and want to hear the music from my desktop system on which i am... how to do this??
Thanks in Advance
I think you should be able to do this with a combination of MPD and icecast.
That would depend on how you are setup. I have a drive at home, on my linux box, that I share out (NFS/Samba) the has all my music on. I just map the drive and play the music. Simple and easy to do.
Can You please explain the setup procedure am using fedora core 8...
Edit your export file in /etc and place your directory that you want to allow to be mounted by other linux systems like so;
Then edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and towards the bottom add the directory you want windows to be allowed to mount like so;
[music] comment = Music Share path = /music
System Steeings -> Server Settings.
There you can also add users who will be accessing the Samba share.
Don't forget to add the users for samba else they won't be able to mount the share.
Google is your friend. You should be able to find plenty on sharing both for NFS and Samba.
Don't forget to restart the services once you have made changes to them with;
service <service> restart
