Wireless adhoc network in ubuntu 10.10
Please follow the steps mentioned below to facilitate sharing of files between two Ubuntu systems:
Firstly, create a new folder by right clicking on the desktop on an Ubuntu system to enable file sharing. Then, right click on the new folder and click on sharing options. Click on the checkbox labeled Share this folder available in the Folder sharing dialog box which is displayed on the screen. The system will display an error and will prompt you to install a sharing device. Punch in your login credentials when asked to install the Samba software. To enable sharing, restart the system when the installation completes. When the system is restarted, right click on the folder to be shared and select all the three Folder sharing options in the dialog box. Click on Create share<< “Add permissions automatically” when Nautilus dialog box is displayed.
Now, visit SSH via Places<<Connect to server and configure the two systems with a static IP. On entering the IP address of the system you want to get connected to, a dialog box will appear asking you to provide a valid password. You will get connected to the system when you enter the password of the system you want to get connected to.
