I was having a few issues setting smb shares over the LAN... Having the same user/server names didn't help!
Anyway, in the process of sorting that mess out I came across fish://
I'm currently trying a folder-widget on my desktop set to (Specify a folder) fish://10.0.0.9/home/owner/
which gives me read/write access to all files in the home folder on the other PC (10.0.0.9). Both machines run PCLOS 2010.7 KDE 4.5.2
On connect there is a dialog box requiring username and password... and after that I have full access!
Who else uses this method?
Are there any inherent security issues? (other than the obvious trusted users on the LAN question)
