Mint on the network

Postby stevemcc » Fri Feb 08, 2008 4:16 am

I attend college and I notice a lot of computers attached to the network. If I browse around network:// I can discover a lot of people's personal files. This lead me to wonder, By default with mint are people on my network able to see my files?

The answer should be no unless you have setup file sharing. Files are not shared by default.
