    Odd Networking question(s)


    Hi everybody!
    I need to know 2 things:
    1 - Is it possible to get nero for linux without having to own a licence?
    2 - Here's the networking question: - I have 2 mandrake linux boxes, one with a cd burner and one without. I want to know if I can set up a network between the two boxes and be able to use a cd burning program (like K3B or nero) on the box without the burner and use the cd burner on the other box to do the actual burning. (in other words: I want to burn cds over a network)

    Please Help!
    Thanks,
    Nikosapi

    1)Is there some specific feature that Nero has which is missing from K3B? I think that they are both very nice applications
    2)I'm not quite sure, but you might be able to ssh in and use a command line program like cdrecord. Or setup a VNC Server, and Run K3B remotely.

    1) Use K3B. From my experience it's better than Nero.
    2) Never tryed that, but try cdrecord as lakerdonald suggested.

    Thanks guys, I installed tightVNC and it works very well! I can do anything on the other computer!

    The problem is that I also want to be able to copy files to the computer with the tightVNC server running on it from the computer with the viewer on it. How should I go about doing that?

    And I like Nero because of it's ease of use and all the cool stuff that it can do!

    Have you USED NeroLINUX ???
    If you havent, I assure you its not as cool as Nero 6.6 on Windows.
    I find it ( the Linux ver ) less in options and features than K3b. I installed it sometime back, burnt something on a CD-RW, played with the features, then uninstalled it. Its not yet fully developed. Only when I ever get something as good as Nero6.6-win for LINUX will I consider abandoning K3b.
    The most +ve point for Nero is that their CD Burning API is really great. The GUI part should be way more developed for NeroLINUX.

    Well, I'll deffinetly continue using K3B since I think it's the best tool for burning.

    I did not use it but it looks like something you could use to share your burner.
    I\'m so tired .....
