Re: Networking 2 computers

OK, I am seeing the other computer folders
Connect 1.odt
(75.83 KiB) Downloaded 22 times
but obviously we are using different desktops because my display is quite different from your picture. When I get connected and try to open a shared folder I get the following drop down.

Re: Networking 2 computers

OK, I see a Windows Network on both my desktop and laptop but when I try to open either one I get the 'Unable to mount location' error on both machines. Hope you guys have some more ideas.

Re: Networking 2 computers

Well I must have fat-fingered something on my laptop when I input the whitelist ports because it can't get on the internet. My desktops work fine to access the internet. Please bear with me, as soon as I solve my laptop issue I will be back to resolve the LAN issue. Thanks.

Re: Networking 2 computers

Next idea.

Re: Networking 2 computers

OK altair4, I pinged and the machines are not on the same network, so far so good. Now how do I set up a network where the machines recognize each other.

Re: Networking 2 computers

OK, I installed the following scripts

$ sudo apt-get install nemo-share
$ sudo apt-get install samba system-config-samba cifs-utils winbind

Rebooted them, still nothing with the printers.
There has got to be a way to network in LM19.1 Cinnamon, anyone have any ideas, I will try anything (almost).

Re: Networking 2 computers

I tried it on my main cpu but I don't get any response from samba. Shouldn't I get a GUI display? I have never used samba so I am unaware of what I am supposed to see.

Re: Networking 2 computers

Thanks for the info. If I am not mistaken 'NoMachin' is a program that lets you control another cpu over the internet. I want to network my computers.
