Thanks very much. I have it installed, just have to figure out how to
get it to point to the other computer on the network.
If you're using NFS, and have autofs set up on the client, then you can
browse to /net/remote-computer-hostname/exported-directory-name.
There's probably something similar for Samba, but I found Samba so
irritating that I haven't used it for years (a Windows networking scheme
bludgeoned into Linux).
Other GUI tools, like the KDE Konqueror, which I haven't used for years,
let you use various different protocols to access remote shares, by
specifying the protocol before the path, rather like you do in a web
browser (e.g. http://example.com/
). I think Samba
used the smb:// prefix.
If you've mounted the remote share, then you just browse to the mount
point for it.
