    Hi there, i just have a quick question, if you have say 7pcs connected to a switch, which is connected to a router can they swap files with eachother like windows using workgroups?

    or do you need a server?

    many thanx

    Yes. Using Samba, you can set each machine to a specific workgroup and share files that way. Access control is then based on that machine's user list.

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.
