I have 2 desktop computers and I would like to connect both of these computers together over the internet so I could access the information from one room to another. the computer with the files I would like to get from had kubuntu and the other I would like to the files through is a lubuntu both are 14.04 I tried samba but I’m having much to much problems and I don’t mind sharing the hard drive either but please be very descriptive
The easiest way to do this is to install the OpenSSH server on your Kubuntu machine. You just need the indicate the
ssh package, available from the Software Centre; alternatively you may use the command line:
sudo apt-get install ssh
Then you can access it from the Lubuntu machine with your file browser of choice (with Nautilus or Nemo this would be File -> Connect to Server...). You need to provide the IP address of the Kubuntu system and indicate 22 as the port.
you can share folder between computer or use SSH help for ssh if you are in same network .
if you are not in same network than you have to use Team Viewer. for access another PC.
