Share a folder between 2 machines
Posted on 2004-04-15
I'd like to know if there is any way in which I can make a file system on one machine avaiable on another machine.
I got a help on Experts Exchange forum for networking. It was
mount -o //192.168.0.1:/shareddir username=user password=xxxx /mnt/mountpoint
When I tried this out on my system giving a loop back address it worked fine. So I accepted the answer. But now when I try it on 2 different achines, I get an error saying
mount: special device //192.168.0.1:/shareddir does not exist
though /shareddir exists on the system.
Is there any other way I can do it? Is there no way the machine that contains the folder make it available to the requesting machine?
Hope to get some help in this problem.
Thank you in anticipation,
