Opening ports for networking
Further more i want to setup a lan connection between those 2 boxes. U know, without ftp.. Just peer to peer connection like windows--windows. How can i do that;
paul - with the lan, just make sure both boxes recognize dhcp, and use either a switch or hub or even a crossover cable to hook them together. then ping one another to make sure they work. that should do the trick.. as for port opening i have no idea. good luck.I praise Webmin and PuTTy!

this is a little more complicated than opening the ports. First install ssh servers and ftp servers on both, I dont think that either has a firewall enabled by default. the ports are closed becasue you dont have any server listening on it, so the OS closes it.
