• \[Solved\] How to configure home network Antergos and Mint


    Hi,

    I have Antergos on my laptop and on my old PC, I have installed Linux Mint. I have connected them using network switch( wired connection ). I have assinged IP Addresss, configured internet for both of them, assinged DNS server. On my laptop, I have confgured firewall like this

    sudo ufw status
    

    Status: active

    To Action From


    192.168.1.2/tcp ALLOW 192.168.1.6/tcp

    192.168.1.2 is IP address of my laptop where I have installed Antergos. What else I will have to do on Antergos so that I will be able to connect to this laptop from Linux Mint. Linux Mint IP Address is 192.168.1.6. Please note that the network has to be secured which means no one from internet should be able to connect to my network.

    Thanks

  • not too sure how this is manually done but I was quite interested in finding out myself. I too have both desktop and laptop; however, I did do some googling on this same subject and I found something on stackexchange.
    Have a look at this link. I hope it helps.
    Apparently, it works. But read all of the posts on this topic at the link posted below.

    I also went perusing on the Ubuntu forums ([i:1n89r29i]because Mint is Ubuntu/Debian based – so this has some relevance for your configuration of Arch and Ubuntu-based distro[/i:1n89r29i]) and I did also find something there. It’s a bit of a different take; however, the post I’m leading you too explains quite briefly how it’s done.

  • I take it you do not want to use samba, correct?

  • If both systems use Linux and you don’t have to share with a Windows machine, NFS is what you need:

    If you want to share with Windows, then you need SAMBA:

    [url:1715r7gr]https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/samba[/url:1715r7gr]

    If you use samba, remember to install gvfs-smb to be able to see your shares in the file browser.

    Cheers!

  • Thanks for reply. For the time being, I have installed openssh server and configured at both the end. I think I will have to install NFS next weekend. Thanks once again for help.
