Hello tatamata

I normally pass files between Puppy machines on my LAN by using gFTP ftp client

Fire up PureFTPd FTP server and gFTP ftp client on BOTH machines.

Then, on machine 1
enter the following details into gFTP ftp client
    Host: = IP address of machine 2 (for example: 192.168.1.64)
    Port: = 21
    User: = root
    Pass: = woofwoof


Then, on machine 2
enter the following details into gFTP ftp client
    Host: = IP address of machine 1
    Port: = 21
    User: = root
    Pass: = woofwoof


Hope this helps
CatDude

Since you are already familiar with Pnethood, you could run a Samba server on your Puppy machines. Read here.

Read the other replies to see about setting up a samba server.

Once you have that working it is fairly easy to share files but here is a little trick:

mount.cifs <remotetarget> <dir> -o <options>

You can mount the shared folder into any directory you want. This means that one one machine you can have a real root/shared and on the other mount the share into a directory with the same name. This way other than the fact that it is only really on one machine, both see it in the same place.

You can make a script in the etc/rc.d and add a line to rc.local to do the mount process. I am thinking of something that goes into the background and waits for 30 seconds and then tries to mount it. Perhaps it can loop until it works or even perhaps hang around and loop every minute or so to remount it if something goes bad.
