    File/Print Sharing help?


    I am using Core 8 on my school network, and am trying to file/print share with another Core 8 user on the same network.

    I don't know much about how linux works (I am new to it), so could somebody explain to me how to file share?

    I have heard it involves samba, but that is about all I know.

    Thanks.

    <Linux> - Google Search is your friend. Use the force.

    Search on NFS. That is how linux boxes share files between themselves.
    You'll have to setup your export file and start the service.

    Again do a search on print sharing between linux boxes.
    You'll again have to make a few configuration changes and start the service.

    Samba is only needed if you are trying to get file/print sharing between linux and windows.

    For file sharing, look into NFS as suggested above. As for printing, you can use CUPS to setup a network printer and share it with other machines on the network.

    Thanks for the help. I tried searching before, but I was obviously searching the wrong thing (Samba help and such)

    Once again, thanks.
