Share files between 2 ubuntu computers
if you have two computers running Ubuntu on the same network, it could be an good idea to use openssh to share files between them.
sudo apt-get install openssh-server openssh-client
Then you need to figure out the ip of each the computer you want to connect to. Most of the time it’s something like 192.168.1.2 or something in that line.
On the computer you want to access the files from, go to “File -> Connect to Server”.
Service type should be “SSH”"
Server should be the “ip” adress of the pc where the info is on.
Port, enter “22″
Pick the folder you wish to share (could take some time to connect depending on the size of the folder).
The user name of the pc you are connected to
The bookmark will be the name of the folder in nautilus
After that you’ll get a windows where you have to enter a password. That would be the password of the pc you are trying to connect to.
You should have read/write permissions.
