I set up the NFS shares on the computer downstairs a while back and they do work. I can can go into Dolphin, click on Network, and sometimes have to press F5 but then the machines on the network do show up. I click on the machine I want, click one of the listings on that machine, enter the prompted username and password, and then the directory view finally arrives.
I would much prefer one click access, no password req'd. I'm sure this is possible. Any hints?
