Networking between Win XP and Fedora Linux PC's.
Posted on 2009-02-21
I have a 8 port LAN switch to which I have connected Win XP (latest service pack) box and and Fedora Core 6 box.
There is router that connects the switch to the Internet. All is working except I do not know how to network Win XP and Linux boxes, I mean what setup I need to run on both so that I can easily see the hard disk content of one PC to from another PC as well easily copy files from one to another mainly using GUI interface rather than command line.
Also Win Xp is fully protected with McAfee anti-virus software.
Please be specific when providing this solution like exactly what steps needs to be taken. If you provide an external URL for help, that is OK but please still provide detailed instructions on this setup both on Linux and Win XP or I prefer some one who is available from 10 am to 10 pm GMT UK time for interactive help.
Last time some one provided an external website link but it was outdated and it was referring to Windows 98 and many linux commmands specified there did not work on Fedora 6.
If you have previously posted answer to my previous post regarding this issue, please do not post your solution as it did not work out. The problem I am facing remains unresolved so I am re-posting it.
