Welcome to Our Website!

Well now, for the past 7 years, or so, I have been "Networking" my 'Puters here at home -and- NOT really knowing what the heck I was doing. I had/have 'one' Linux machine and ALL the rest were/are Windows machines. Don't know IF you've noticed or not -but- Windows PC's almost Network themselves... on a local Network.

What brings this up is... I just got a  New HP Pavilion 500-277c i7-Quad Computer   My initial setup and testing was in my 'Shop' -and- I was able to communicate with my other computers at almost no effort. Give it a hostname and join in my TRComputing group and --- wamo. We are connected. But we were/are in Windows 8 on the New Machine.

Now then, my 'Old PC' was/is running Linux openSuSE 12.3 -but- I also had Samba setup on it. With that setup I was able to connect easily with the New PC... via Windows. However, when it came to talking between the two Linux machines... things were different. Samba was NOT necessarily used.

 System Properties  This is something in Windows. In it we have Computer Name, Full Computer Name, Computer Description and Workgroup. This information, at least the name and description, is what is shown in the Workgroup of "Samba Shares" of the Network in Linux Dolphin.

 May 2nd, 2016 /8:40am  Alllllllrighty now... We have obtained "another new machine" so we are trying to UpDate this again. It is, naturally, an HP. This one is an  HP Envy 700-530qe i7-Quad Computer. It also came with Windows 8 installed -BUT- at the end, or close to it, of the set up it offered Windows 10. After some long thought... we accepted the offer and it has been on Windows 10 for the time I have had it. Also have it "Dual Booting" with openSuSE 13.2.


     Linux Network Two Machines

Between 2 Linux machines, Samba is not necessary as its intented to bridge between Windows and Linux, where Linux works natively. -But- I have a mixture. Do I need Samba on both?? I believe I do so that they can both talk to the Windows machines. -But- one has to be the master -or- so I would think. There is that 'Master' setting in Samba. Now with my current setup, I have used Homesite to edit my HTML files from -and- to my Laptop. So, let's search the Web a little more...

Target Hostname Tipper-i7.trcomputing

  •  Make sure hostnames of IP addresses of both server and client are known across the network. One PC will be the 'Server' and one will be the 'Client'.
  •  Allllrighty now...We have sftp on both machines. openSuSE installs it by default. Using the sftp Protocol

    Copying files in KDE or GNOME with SFTP is very simple. Proceed as follows:

    1. Press Alt-F2.
    2. Enter the following at the address prompt:
    3. Enter your the password of  ctaylor   on  dusty-tr2.trcomputing  .
    4. Drag and drop your server files or directories to your desktop or a local directory.
