Home network with Lubuntu
I have a challenge which needs to be solved: I have 2 desktop systems both running Lubuntu 12.04.
PC-1 is mainly used as my main desktop system.
PC-2 is connected to my flatscreen tv for playing movies. Connected to this system is a 1.5 Terabyte external HDD disc which needs to be accessible from PC-1 (green line)
Both systems are connected to the router (red line).
How do I get network access from PC-1 to PC-2 and get access to my ext. HDD disc through the network? It is merely for data transfer (movies/music).
Anybody here who can give me an easy step-by-step explanation on how to fix this?
Many thanks in advance!

Hi. A NFS share would do it. At first, launchCode:
You hard drive on PC-2 must be mounted on some mount point, for example /media/external.
Install "nfs-kernel-server" on both machines.
Create a mount point on PC-1 withCode:
echo "/media/external *(rw)" >> /etc/exports
On PC-1, mount the NFS share withCode:
sudo mount -t nfs -o tcp address_of_pc-2:/media/external /media/externalCode:
cat /etc/mtab | grep 'external' >> /etc/fstab
