I have been googling networking in linux, but keep getting linux-windows-SAMBA tutorials.
New to linux. Newer to networking. Have two PCs connected via ethernet card and cat5 crossover cable. Here are specs.
Ethernet connection to PC 2 (configured in GUI)
Dialup modem to internet thru kppp
set address to 192.168.1.1
Fedora Core 2
Ethernet connection to PC 1 (configured in network device control GUI)
set address to 192.168.1.2
each PC can ping itself and can ping the other PC so I assume they are connected.
But for right now I would just like to know:
1. how to confirm that the PCs are connected. (does the pinging confirm this?)
2. how to see/share files between PC's. Am not even sure of the process. Is this NFS? if so, how can I find out if the NFS is installed. Have been searching thru FC2 menus in the GUI....no luck. Found NFS mount points in Mandrake, but what to do with them?
3.Then I would like to let PC 2 connect to internet thru PC1.
thanks for any help
