home network: win-win-slack
i guess i'm not a good network adminstrator since (searching for the usual google help) I cant manage to set up my own home network - so here I am again asking for help
living in a share house it happen that we share bills, etc... so we have one one connection and three PCs (two runing windows and myself running slackware10.2) and we use a wireless router modem to all access the internet - but now we'd like to also be able to share files and other resources and therefore build a small home network - the problem arise when the two windows boxes are actually using wireless adaptors to access the network and myself a LAN cable
my question is: how can i make my box see the wireless windows machines? and how will they see me?
i tried to write '/etc/hosts.allow' / '/etc/hosts.deny' , but I wasnt very lucky
any suggestions welcome!
many thnxIf you get on the wrong train all the stations you will come to will be the wrong stations.
Before you do anything else, from konqueror
click Go->Network Folders->Samba shares.
Your Slackbox should be able to access windows
shares by default, but you may run into password issues.
The fact that you use wire and the windows boxes use
wireless should not be an issue, as long as they are all
connecting to the same router.
To share from Slackware, you need to configure and
enable the Samba server.
