    Greetings! I'm just new to this system (Linux).
    Now, my concern is this: How can i access files in other computers which are also connected in our network.. If I am using windows, and I want to access files in other computers that are using or running in Linux how or what command am I going to use.
    Thank you so much.

    If you want to access files on a linux computer from windows, there are a few ways you can do it:
    1. Setup a Samba server on the linux machine, the shared directories on the linux machine will now appear as shares in "Network Neighbourhood" in windows.
    2. Setup ssh on the linux machine, then on windows, either use ssh, putty or WinSCP (nice graphical one) to access files on linux machine.
    3. Try setting up FTP access on linux, then use ftp client on windows to access the linux shares.

    There are a few old threads on these forums regarding setting up these things, so hae a look around.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
