OpenSUSE Network :: Wired Router - Transfer Files Between Local Computers
Jun 4, 2011
Should I be able to transfer files between computers wired to the same router? Is the router bridging function used to transfer data between wired computers? I just got DSL and I'm new to networking. I have openSuse 11.4 on two computers plugged into a Belkin router. The internet connection to my ISP works from either computer. If I ping $HOSTNAME from either computer, the hostnames are different, but the IP address is the same which is that of my ISP. I only have the one router, but it has a bridging option. I don't know if it can do both bridging and routing simultaneously.
I want to transfer files (a music folder) between two Linux computers. After searching for the best way to do this, I've seen that there are lots of ways of doing this. I know this has been asked a lot, everywhere and all the time. The main problem with this is that there is no clear, recent consensus on one best way to do this task in 2011 for Linux beginners (even depending on some parameters).
So in the spirit of the Stack Exchange websites, I want this not to be related to my particular situation, but more of a guide to others as well on how to transfer files between two Linux computers over a local network. I think a wiki would be useful for many.
Here's what I found so far:
ssh sshfs scp sftp nfs samba giver
What is the easiest? Most flexible? Simplest? Best solution? What are the pros and cons of each? Are there other (better) options? What are the parameters in choosing the best method (solution might depend on number of files, filesize, easiness vs. flexibility, )?
I currently have two computers (one windows one linux) connected to each other via a crossover ethernet cable. Now, each computer can see each other and I can ping both ways. Also, I can ssh into the linux box from windows (putty, cygwin) as well as ssh into my windows machine from the linux box. Here's the problem: I can send files from my linux machine to my windows machine with no problems doing this:
Now, it seems like everything went fine. However when I look in /home/jqweezy that_file.txt is not there.
p.s. Don't know if this helps, but here is some extra info. Linux machine has only one NIC. Windows has two NICs, one NIC is setup for automatic network detection the other is setup for communication with linux machine via crossover cable (see above).
I have a Windows 7 Desktop and an Ubuntu Laptop connected with a KVM switch. I use the setup for software development, so I am constantly switching between the two, so I need a way to quickly transfer files between the two. I'm not sure if this is possible, but if I could connect them in a way where the OS of each mounts the hard drive of the other. Is there a way I could do this?
I have Ubuntu on one machine and open SUSE on the other. Both connected with an ethernet cable to the same router. Both connect to the internet ok. I did manage to set up 2 machines both running Ubuntu with file sharing but now I have switched one to SUSE I seem to be getting into a mess. Ubuntu sees the SUSE machine but does not open any folders. SUS does NOT see the Ubutu machine. I have looked for a beginners guide to setting up file shaing with SUSE without success. (I like SUSE better because I can use my Audiophile sound card "out of the box")
I have two computers: one is connected with router by wi-fi and another is connected with router by lan. How I can optimal organize connection between two computers with Ubuntu 10.04 for transfer files? What Do I do? Can I share some folders,
I have been trying to remotely access another computer (which is outside my local network) with ssh and have not succeeded. I've done everything I've seen nothing to suggest and as I opened port 22 on both computers, I have ssh configured so as to allow access from any computer (with password) and tried to log in using the external IP (the encounter with these online pages of "what is my ip"), I have a firewall turned off, the pc from which I agree is Fedora 14 that I want to access MacOS 10.5.8.
I need this because I'm running a very heavy program at the university that I can not run on my personal laptop, but do not want to have to go every day to college for this.
im trying to connect two computers on lan.One computer has: VMWare Workstation and has Opensuse 11.3 mounted in it.The other computer has: VMWare Player and has Opensuse 11.3 mounted in it.Both computers are connected to a switch with cables.I have followed this guide in both computers:Depanati singuri calculatorul!: Opensuse 11.3 - configure local networkin order to setup a network.In one computer, if i go to: Computer---Network---Network folder, i only see one machine. When in fact i could see both of them right
I will cut to the chase. I am running three ubuntu computers on my local network:my desktop which runs ethernet, and two laptops which run wireless on the same network, and all from the same router. For purpose of this thread, I am concentrating on this one issue with pulse(assuming its pulse doing this). When I have two computers running at the same time, or even all three, I can hear bursts of sound coming from the other computer, not all the time, but consistently. I don't know what is causing this. I've searched hi and low in all ubuntu pulse audio forums and those mentioning pulseaudio and I have not seen this issue posted anywhere. Most threads deal with issues of not being able to get pulse to recognise audio from one computer to the other...mine is just the opposite...I'M TRYING TO STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING!...... If I'm listening to my music on my desktop, I don't want to hear what my son is playing on his laptop...and vice versa. all the computers at my home are running lucid lynx, latest updates and latest approved kernel as of the date of this post. 2.6.32-26-generic.
I have a Ubuntu server hosted on Amazon EC2. I need to create an automated backup scheme so I created another Ubuntu instance on my local network which is hosted in a virtual environment. I managed to transfer the necessary files between 2 machines on the same network using the rsync command:
How can I do the same thing but transferring files from my Amazon server to my local server? Is there a way I can achieve this with port forwarding, or by VPN, or anything else? It doesn't have to be rsync. If you know about a better method, kindly let me know.
I have a big iso image which is currently being downloaded by a torrent client with space-reservation turned on: that means, file size is not changing while some chunks in in (4 Mib) are constantly changing because of a download.
At 90% download I do the initial rsync to save time later:
$ rsync -Ph DVD.iso /media/another-hdd/ sending incremental file list DVD.iso
Then, when the file's fully downloaded, I rsync again:
total size is 2.60G speedup is 1.00
Speedup=1 says delta-transfer was not used, although 90% of the file has not changed, target dir is on another FS and copying takes several minutes. Why doen't it try to speedup the transfer?! How can I force rsync to use delta-transfer?
how to copy files over my network between my two computers.
I have done it before, but don't remember all the things I had to go through to do it.
None of the instructional things that I have found has given me actual instructions that I understand.
Actually I have not even found instructions for using scp that I can understand. I have all ready done this in the past, yet with 30 years experience with computers, a bachelors degree in computer science, 20 years experience with linux I still cannot understand anything that I have found that tells how to do this.
I have two problems.
(1) the actual syntax of scp. None of the instructions I have found tell what anything is in their examples.
They might say:
scp blah blah yadda yadda zonk zonk.
They don't bother to tell me what blah blah is or what yadda yadda is, or what zonk zonk is.
(2) Also none of them tells what has to be set up in configuration files for things to work. For example one of my computers is named KING, and one is named QUEEN. There is probably something on computer KING that tells what QUEEN is. I don't know what this configuration file is, so of course I can't put in the entries that would do the job.
So where are some instructions that I might find for doing this copy of files over my network of two computers?
Last night while setting up wired & wireless connection in openSuse 11.2 Gnome version via YAST's ifup, I got wireless but lost wired connection (interface eth0). Dmesg shows that eth0 became eth1. I cannot get eth0 back. Is there any way to remedy this situation, eg. get info from the Ubuntu partition in my triple-boot laptop, without having to re-install openSUSE?
In my laptop with debian-lenny OS I have a number of ripped dvd movies some of which are about 2.5GB. I have transferred those with less than 2GB (that is the size of my usb-flashdrives) to my netbook (with opensuse-11.3 OS) with the help of usb-flashdrives. Is there any method of tranferring the larger files by connecting the two machines by ethernet cables with usb ports and using some software packages?
I'm looking for a program that I can use to sync files between two computers. I have a laptop that travels around with me and I want a simple way of transferring the new/changed files to the desktop computer. I'm looking for something that would be simple and quick (point & click) to transfer/backup:photosKDE PIM (emails, ontacts and calender)documentsmusic etc.
I have tftpd-hpa and dhcp3-server up and running. I just want to install server edition via network, from the host machine (my laptop, running ubuntu 9.10) with an ISO file (ubuntu 8.04 32-bit server edition). I managed to boot the client machine with pxe-netboot technique, but instead downloading all the files from internet, I need to do this process directly from ISO. To transfer ISO from host to client, I also installed Apache. I unpacked ISO file into /var/lib/tftpboot/server/. I created a link to the Apache root: /var/www
Code: ubuntu@ubuntu:/var/www$ ls returns => index.html server server folder is the place where I unpacked the ISO.
My dhcp3-server has this setup and it works well with netboot, but I don't know how to add Apache to the formula to transfer the iso file from host to client. Firewall is disabled. This is my edited /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf file.
When I pxe-boot the client, the process comes to a halt when tftp server is trying to access to pxelinux.0 file. I got thls error: PXE-T00: Permission denied PXE-E36: Error received from TFTP server I have no experience with Apache... so I think there is a problem with my IP addresses.. Do I need to use 127.0.1.1 instead of 192.168.2.1 (my routers IP)?
I'm trying to make changes to several computers at once in a private network. I have ssh keys setup so that I can ssh from the main computer to all the other computers without having to enter my password. So I wrote a bash script like for computers in `cat computer list` do ssh $computers #type changes here exit done
but instead of executing the commands on every computer, it opens a shell on every computer for me to type into, just as if I had used ssh myself and not in a script. how to get this to work? I want to be able to add lines at the comment like "echo "test" > /testFile.txt" and be able to see the changes on each machine, in this case see testFile.txt on every machine.
My computer shares an internet connection using an ADSL router.There are other three machines.I have set up a Apache server for learning purpose and I want it to be inaccessible from anywhere else including the PCs in the network.When I enter my ip-address assigned in the network (192.168.1.1xx) from other computer,I get my ppages and I dont want that.
How can I block HTTP requests from other computers?
I setup the hostname for my linux machine to Linux. If I try ping Linux from the same computer it works. If I try from another computer inside my network the host can not be resolved. If I ping the IP from another computer it works.
I take a look in my router at DHCP client list and my linux machine doesn't have the Hostname set up.
How to broadcast the hostname to the entire network?
