Linux to Linux Networking but help needed
i have two pcs both running Fedora 5 only, no other os on them.
1. can i make a network of these 2 in order to learn the linux side of networking? i want one of them to be the server and other the client. is this possible? if yes, then what do i need to do? use samba, scp, nfs, sshfs?
2. i want the server and client to share files, folders, printer, mail all that is possible. but i do not know what else is possible. can you please tell me as what i can do more or what the possibilities are?
3. i want the server to be able to take a complete control of the client ie trun it on, shut down etc. is it possible? if yes, then what i need to do.
i have been looking around the net to find a guide to setting up samba for newbies like me on Fedora 5 but can't seem to be able to find any thing at all with reference to Fedora 5. most of the material is about connecting windows and linux using samba which is not the case for me. mine is both fedroa 5 pcs as said earlier. can any one please give me a simple step by step guides/urls that i can try to follow on my own. since i want to connect only 2 pcs, i hope it should be not that difficult even for an idiot like me. to be honest, i am completely new to linux and trying my best to learn as much as on my own, so please guide me and thanks a lot for your time. i really appreciate it.
