Every computer in my home runs Ubuntu 12.04 We have a wireless network setup. I want to be able to share files & printer wirelessly over the network. But I am a total idiot when it comes to networking & do not have the slightest clue! Everything I can find on the subject assumes you are using 1 or more windows devices you want to connect toyour Linux machine. They say sambe of course. But I dont want to connect Windows devices. I would like to have every device automaticaly connect and be discoverable on the network by all other devices. Can someone help me do this in laymens terms???? I changed the etc/network/file according to instructions found here: http://tuxtweaks.com/2008/10/how-to-set-up-a-home-network-with-ubuntu-part-1/ Then ran this code :
`sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart`
Here is the result:
`* Running /etc/init.d/networking restart is deprecated because it may not enable again some interfaces
* Reconfiguring network interfaces... RTNETLINK answers: File exists
Failed to bring up eth0.
[ OK ]
What am I doing wrong?
