could always use ssh.

first find the ip of your ubuntu desktop by entering on it:
Code:
ifconfig


there should be a bit saying inet address for the network interface your ubuntu desktop is connected on. This is your local IP address.

Next enter on your puppy machine:

Code:
sftp yourname@yourIP


where yourname is your username on your ubuntu desktop and yourIP is your local IP that we found above.

It should then prompt for a password, so enter your user password for your ubuntu desktop.

after that use:
cd - to change directory
ls - to list files
get - to get files from your ubuntu desktop
put - to move files to you ubuntu desktop

enter this for more details:
Code:
man sftp


If you want to d it using samba or a different way I'm afraid I dont know much about that.

Hope this helps,
Jim

Once you have that set up it you will be able to see all Windows style shares from a clickable icon on the desktop, including Samba shares from your Ubuntu machine. You will have to share the directory you need to view from Puppy.

Otherwise try Pnethood to scan your Samba shares.

I think in the network menu, there is a file sharing utility.

No I was talking about a file sharing utility.
It's called: PcurlFtp file sharing.
Do you use glasses?
If not, you should maybe. Wink

Oops. Not glasses, just comprehension skills.

Still think FTP would be a painful way to transfer files on a regular basis locally.

As far as I understand, this is for Windows shares only.
The question of the OP was to go to his Ubuntu machines.
I tried PcurlFTP between two puppy machines and it works, but not the way as with Windows shares.
Files you want to xfer have to be put first in the defined directory PcurlFTP can see.

I have no experience with it, but maybe NFS can be used here.

It is for Samba shares. Any shares set up with Samba file sharing (which is the default in Ubuntu) will show up in Puppy, whether it be WIndows, BSD,Linux or any combination.

I know this because I have 2 Windows and 4 Linux machines, and I can see them all here, on my Puppy machine.

The default workgroup for Ubuntu is WORKGROUP which I normally change to MSHOME since that's the WIndows default (and I have nothing much to do with the WIndows machines).

There is a program in the Ubuntu Add/Remove section of Applications called "Samba" which is a graphical interface for adding shares, changing workgroups etc without stuffing around with the command line. If the backend for Samba is not installed it will install it for you.

OK I misunderstood then.
But I think Hairy Will mentioned in the thread he had noticed some problems.
