Subject description: file sharing between two computers on one router
 

Hi!
I've got a laptop with Se7en and a PC with LHPup connected to the same router. How can I share files between them? Possibly without Samba, please.
Could you write an understandable answer? I'm new here(but not n00b, only new Wink )
Thanks

To access a Windows share from Puppy:

1. Declare a shared folder on the Windows machine.

2. Launch Puppy and run Pnethood or lameSMBxplorer from the Network menu.

---------------------------

To access a Puppy share from a Windows machine or another Puppy:

You need to run a server on the host Puppy machine. This could be a full Samba server or an ftp server, but here is my favourite method.

1. Go here and install the Python PET.

2. Set up a share folder anywhere on your Puppy system and put some files in it.

3. Open the folder in ROX.

4. Open a terminal window inside the folder by pressing the backtick key (above the Tab key).

5. Type the command
Code:
 python -m SimpleHTTPServer

6. Minimize the terminal window, but don't close it.

7. Identify your Puppy server's IP address with the command
Code:
ifconfig

8. Go to the client machine and open a web browser.

9. Type in the URL
Code:
http://puppy.server.ip.address:8000

10. To auto-start the server, put a script in /root/Startup like:
Code:
cd /.../share-folder
 python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Glad to help.

You could auto-start the server when Puppy boots, by creating a script in the /root/Startup folder. Add two lines like
Code:
cd /.../share
python -m SimpleHTTPServer

there is another option, install a HTTP File server, this will allow you to upload and download using groups and users, this is a bit more complex but more versatile, you will need java installed, Apache Tomcat http://tomcat.apache.org/download-60.cgiand httpfileserver, http://httpfileserver.sourceforge.net/ I found it quite useful, it even zips the downloads and streams MP3's you can also edit text files and manage the the server remotely, installation is a breeze, httpfileserver is a GUI install just have to tick all the right box's, there are lots of doc's on how it's done and it works fine in puppy

Hi, I have installed samba 3.5.6 from PPM on a frugal install of Lucid Puppy 5.2. From other linux box (client) I can ping the server (lupu5.2). However, the server's netbios name (computer name)is not shown anywhere in the client box. How can I have access to the server's folders/files from the client?
Thanks in advance!

Hi marco 07

I'm not quite sure if I understood your problem, but this thread enabled me to get Samba running:

Note that there are two ways to run a samba server, another one is Samba-TNG, a lightweight samba server:
