File/Print Sharing help?
I am using Core 8 on my school network, and am trying to file/print share with another Core 8 user on the same network.
I don't know much about how linux works (I am new to it), so could somebody explain to me how to file share?
I have heard it involves samba, but that is about all I know.

<Linux> - Google Search is your friend. Use the force. :)
Search on NFS. That is how linux boxes share files between themselves.
You'll have to setup your export file and start the service.
Again do a search on print sharing between linux boxes.
You'll again have to make a few configuration changes and start the service.
Samba is only needed if you are trying to get file/print sharing between linux and windows.
For file sharing, look into NFS as suggested above. As for printing, you can use CUPS to setup a network printer and share it with other machines on the network.
Thanks for the help. I tried searching before, but I was obviously searching the wrong thing (Samba help and such)
Once again, thanks.
