Thread: Best way to see folder in Dolphin on other comp on network?

  1. #1

    Default Best way to see folder in Dolphin on other comp on network?

    I have two linux computers (opensuse 11.0 and Fedora 11) on the same network and I want to share the Fedora's folder so I can see it in dolphin (or any GUI windows folder app). What's the best/quickest way to do this?

    Thanks!

    Setup ssh.
    Decide which machine is going to be the server and which is going to connect. Enable ssh in the firewall of the server.
    Now use the connecting client and setup a key as here
    http://susewiki.org/index.php?title=...ation_with_SSH

    Copy the key to the server as instructed (I think I used a pen drive, I had trouble with my setup) And I used a password as well as the key. You need to edit the ssh config files on the server too see section 6. onward

    Then to login from the remote client:
    fish://xxxx@192.168.0.2/home

    xxxx=username of sever
    192.168.0.2 = LAN IP of server

    I've been using Dolphin for this very task this week to look at files on an Ubuntu server I have set up for website testing. I was able to view files via sftp (ftp over sssh). For example, I entered the following in Dolphin to peruse the /var/www directory:

    sftp://192.168.53.94/var/www

    I have to enter remote username and password before proceeding, but very simple.

    Start with SSH - openSUSE

    I ran sshd. I setup the config as required. i created pub/priv keys on both computers. But I can't get a connection to stay open!!

    If I ssh to the server, it says:

    Code:
    Last login: Sat Sep 12 02:28:32 2009 from 192.168.1.104
    Connection to 192.168.1.103 closed.
    If I use try to connect through Dolphin (as ssh network folder) after it prompts for the password, it says it cannot connect!

    What's wrong?

    And why's it even asking me for that password? Shouldn't the public keys (I copied the client's to the server and set up the authenticated keys file) be sufficient?

    A "/etc/init.d/sshd restart" got the password working now but the public key thing isn't working since I still need to use my regular password!

    When you generated the Public Key, did you enter a password or just hit enter?
