I have friends crying the blues about their $400/month bills. I'd FREAK OUT if I ever got an electric bill like that!
Speaking as one of those friends with the $400/month electric bill, I should point out that there's an upside to it too.  For one, I get to stay cool in the blazing sun of a Florida afternoon.  Eric's place sits under nice tall trees.  Mine is almost entirely exposed to the summer sun.But I mentioned an upside and here it is - my electric bill goes down to about $60/month when winter gets here.  It's like a Christmas present from TECO!And it's only $400 one or maybe two months.  Most of the time it hangs around $150-$250The cost is almost entirely Air Conditioning, which runs from March through November.

Eric, In my house it doesn't matter what really drives the bill up...it's me and my computers fault..(even when they are turned off) I haven't really figured the thought process out..   :(   But we do the alternate high electric in summer and high gas in winter bills.  What hurts us ( in the summer)is almost 24/7 washing and drying( we have 2 adults plus 5 kids still at home)...AC..and that freaking pool that everyone wants but I do all the work..stuff.  (sorry my little rant...LOL)

Sure they do.  It's called growing up.  It'll happen faster as the economy starts to pick back up again too.

It doesn't take a crystal ball to know that they're likely as tired of being there as you are of hosting them... again.  But in the current economy it's tough to gather enough filthy lucre to get away.  But one thing I can tell you for sure about the economy - it WILL change.  We seem to be pretty near the bottom of the cycle at this point, so it'll gradually swing back up again and they'll be out of your hair.Also Sprach Chipathustra!  :)

I saw that movie in its first run way back in 1968 and it totally blew me away.  Though I'd been a SciFi guy for years, there was something really moving about being able to SEE it like that.  It really opened up my mind and in many ways shaped my outlook to this day.

Topic? There was a topic?   :( Right.

It's not at all bad on my widescreen at home, but it sure was magnificent on the big screen in the theater in 1968.  Of course the bleeding edge was 4-bit computers back then...

So, with my ericsbane05 (main system), ericslaptop01, ericsshop02, and jenslaptop all up and running these days, I considered trying to get that file/printer sharing via my router going again. After an hour or so worth of searching and reading, I've decided that it's still not worth all the trouble. Sadly, this is one thing that MS Windows has made really easy for the user. In Linux, not so much... ssh, samba, nfs, static IPs, port forwarding, etc. YIKES! I have a headache now.

Well if they all run Linux, it is easy to ssh into your machines via separate ports on the router. And if you need the gui to transfer files, gftp is a great ssh/ftp FM client

Can I still ssh without having static IPs and port forwarding (to avoid the router's firewall), etc?

If your router gives you the option of using the mac addy instead of IP address. I do this on all of my machines but I also have a ddwrt compatible router that gives the option.

Why not just give your machines static IPs as it is much easier to do things that way?

I guess I could just give them static IPs, as you suggest. I only really need to do this for file transfers. I'm not too concerned with printer sharing. I can figure printing out later, if need be.

I'm a networking dummy. I need to learn this all from scratch, as I've never utilized it before. I've always only had one system at a time around here to a year or so ago. Now I have 4 running on my network. It's a pain to use external media or thumb drives to transfer small files all the time. It would be nice just to access the files and move them around in real time on the network.

So, what do I need to do?

1. Set static IPs for my devices within my router. Yes?

2. ssh into a remote machine (say ericsshop02) using my main system. Yes?

CODE
$ ssh ericsshop02


Then what? sad.gif

Well if you want to move files just open up gftp, fill in the details and start moving files. Or you could do this (what I do), https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ssh#Mo...stem_with_SSHFS
