Still looking on how to do it on your specific router but you may want to look at this video from Verizon on how to forward ports. Will be useful when have your router set. The bottom post has the video: http://forums.verizo...100em/td-p/3021 Basically what you need is to assign each of your machines a static ip in the router configuration. That way you can map machines to specific internal IPs when opening ports or sharing between machines. This is not your Verizon IP but your internal network IPs.

Think I found it for ya:

Quote

Log into your router. Go to the advanced menu and select IP address distribution and then connection list. There you can set up a static IP for the mac address of the PC, so it will always be issued the same address. Then your computer will show up in My Network and you can forward to it by name. I believe if you set up your PC to use a dynamic address and then go where I stated, you will be able to edit the entry and select a box that says make static. Or you can add a static entry there.

Myeh... tell you what, guys... let's not waste any more time on this. I'm really not up to the challenge of wrestling with Slackware to get this working. I think I'll just set it aside for a project during the cold, dark days of winter later this year.Thanks for the help so far, though. ;)

The cold dark days of winter are actually an excellent time to have a warm computer in your lap for extended periods!

SSH is pretty easy.
ssh username@ip-address
will prompt for a password and then you can do normal command ops on the remote computer.

Now that you have the addies fixed... what happens when you ping <lappy> --> <desky> and <desky> --> <lappy> ?Posted Image(if it's not getting through, go to router's config page and make sure that BOTH the wireless device [lappy] AND the wired device [desky] are using an IP addy within the SAME IP range... and that both the wired and wireless "parts" are using the SAME subnet mask.)

Myeh... it's just more trouble than it's worth to set this all up. There's really no need for me to be sharing between the two systems, anyway. If there is a particular file or whatever that I need on the lappy (or vice-versa), I can always copy it to USB flash stick and transfer to the other system. It's quick and nasty... and EASY! Easy has become important to me lately. Life's too ****** short for the hard way. Sounds like the Slacker is really becoming a slacker. ;)

I hear ya :thumbsup:Well if you ever need to open up any ports, you will have to setup the static IPs and IP-forwarding on your router. Otherwise the router will block the ports.

Also, its very easy to connect to your home machine while you are out and about. For instance:
 ssh -p (port number) IP
That basically connects to your router and and uses the port number to go to a specific machine on the network.Very useful!!! I use it via my smartphone all the time to connect to gnuscreen on my main desktop.

That wouldn't work for me because when I'm not sitting in front of my machine and actually using it for something, it's powered down (totally - all power shutoff at power strip). ;)

Yeah I forgot you always power down  ;) Heck, I do not think I have turned off any of my machines(7) in years except for an occasional reboot. Screensaver mode is sufficient for me :)

Power down? Do desktop workstations have a setting for that?I thought only laptops powered down (when the battery goes all the way flat).

Yeah its called halting your machine and urning off your powerstrip. I would not recommend it though  :whistling:

Well, you like cherry flavored Coke. I like regular flavored. Do whatever works for you. I can sit here an type a 1000 word thesis on why I power my units down when I'm not using them, but why bother. I'm sure you guys could counter with a similar sized thesis stating your views on it. Let's all just do it the way WE want to. :D

Barry, people have no clue how all those little "always on standby" electronics devices suck the electricity out of those wall sockets. I started powering down everything that's not in use around my house about three years ago. That and the 100% use of "curly-cue" bulbs has cut my electric bill down to about $70 a month. It might fluctuate three of four dollars either way throughout the year (I'm on averaged billing). I have friends crying the blues about their $400/month bills. I'd FREAK OUT if I ever got an electric bill like that!
