    Accomplishment


    While it may seem small to most here, I have spent the entire morning working on setting up a shared folder between two pcs (I suppose one is now the server and the other a client) using nfs. I originally threw my hands up in the air and settled for Samba, but in my readings that seemed like the wrong way to go for two Linux systems. Anyway, after some scratching of my head and much research, I made it work, to include auto-mounting. I'm used to Windows where everything was eerily easy to do so it required a certain relearning of how to do everything. Needless to say, it was fun and thanks to everyone who posted on the threads I read and wrote articles I researched.

    Very nice. I can always seem to get NFS to work on CentOS, but I can never get it working on Debian, and I'm simply too lazy and have no reason to figure it out

    Feels good don't it when you figure something out?

    Good job!
    Nice work on getting it going by researching the problem, and looking for solutions that are already available online.
    Just for that... you get a
