Curiosity and Frustration getting the better of me...

Recommended Posts

Hi there again :"> Please bear with me here --->>>Have NEVER EVER set my two desktops to communicate with each other BUT--->>>With all the manoevering between external hard dives (one for each ) it may be time to explore the HOW-TO do thisThe 4600+ has XP/MDV Spring 2009 Gnome and the Quad has XP/PCLinuxOS 2009.1 GnomeIs there a NEVER BEEN THERE BEFORE WAY :rolleyes: of transferring between these two deskiesMust explain "kamicota" is common to XP/MDV and PCLinux Os's if that is a problem Only want to do this in Linux from Both the Quad and the 4600+ Dual core because to do it in XP would need netbouy set up I think and do not wish to mess with that.Any ideas out there before the drive images procedures set up takes over :) Cheers for YearsColin :thumbsup:

The easiest ( so you don't have to use the comandline ) would be to install an ftp server on the MDV box . . . you can then access it from the PCLos box and send files up and down.First steo would be to open the MCC and install the "drakwizard" package . . . once that is installed you will see that after closing and re-opening the MCC there is a new section in the MCC called "sharing"Let me know when you are up to that point.:hysterical: Bruno

Okay Colin . . .we will do one more step today and the rest of the steps tomorrow ( getting late here :hysterical: )Choose Configure ftp and go for all the defaults the wizard is presenting, that is setting up a server for the intranet ( = local network ) . . . it's easy just click "yes" and "ok"Are you using KDE in PCLos ? . . . . If you are using Gnome please install "konqueror" we will need it tomorrow.:"> Bruno

Okay Colin, no problem.If you type "hostname" in a terminal you probably see "localhost" . . .. that is the name of the server.Admin email is "root"And, you do not want to permit root login.B) Bruno

Did TICK access to Internet and Intranet
Oooo Noooooooo !!! . . . Look at my post above ( post #4 ) I said do only the defaults and intranet . . . ( only intranet was ticked by default !! )Now you did set up a server for the internet and the whole world will be able to get files from your computer :(First do as root:
# rm -f  /etc/proftpd.conf

Next please do it again . . . one step at a time . . .do NOT tick boxes that are not ticked by default. . . please consult before making changes to defaults.B) Bruno

OOPS!!! B) The "drakwizard" program has crashed with the following error: no FTP configuration file found! warning. at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/MDK/Wizard/Proftpd.pm line 253. standalone::bug_handler() called from /usr/lib/libDrakX/wizards.pm:202 wizards::safe_process() called from /usr/sbin/drakwizard:89To submit a bug report, click on the report button. This will open a web browser window on Bugzilla where you'll find a form to fill in. The information displayed above will be transferred to that serverIt would be very useful to attach to your report the output of the following command: 'lspcidrake -v'.Cheers for YearsColin B)

Okay . . now go to the other computer . . open up konqueror and type in the addressbar:ftp://192.168.1.64/and hit <enter>you should get a popup asking for your username ( the one of your MDV box ) and password . . . after that you can move files to and from the MDV box.B) Bruno

Yep I know . . that is not ideal. Maybe configure the ftp server again and don't give a name to the server ( so were you typed localhost leave it empty )B) Bruno
