    Linux to Linux Networking


    I've got Linux talking to Windoze just fine, but how does one get Linux talking to Linux? I am running FC3, and all I see when I go to the network in "Computer" is the Windows network. I do not want to have to access another Linux box through SMB blocks, that seems stupid. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!!!

    I've gotten so far with this stuff, it's amazing.

    You are right, don't use samba (the SMB or CIFS protocols). I would use scp or sftp to transfer files back and forth between the two servers. You just need to ensure that sshd is running on them (it almost always is).

    If you use samba you can drop and drag if you like. I use samba at home with a multitude of different linux and windows on the network and they all play well together including the Linux to Linux transfers.

    Are there slowdowns in transfer speed on the Linux to Linux transfers in comparison to the Windows to Linux transfers?

    You can also drag 'n' drop with sftp and ftp, as browsers such as konqueror support both protocols.

    If you want to get technical, linux's TCP/IP stack is supposedly faster than Windows. This is due to some technical reason that I am not quite familiar with.
