These tips can make life easier on your computer or home network, but they are extremely insecure. DO NOT use them unless:
sudowithout having to give the password
sudogroup in the file
/etc/group. Edit the file if necessary. Here's an example:
. . floppy:x:25: tape:x:26:
sudo:x:27:dierdorfaudio:x:29:pulse dip:x:30: www-data:x:33: . .
/etc/sudoersto give permission. You must use the program
visudo(as root) to edit this file! (If sudoers is messed up, the system might not run at all; the visudo program checks for syntax errors before writing back to the disk.) To be safe, do the following:
> cd /etc > sudo cp sudoers sudoers.bak > sudo visudo [make changes as shown below] [save the file]
i) and how to exit (
esc, :x!to quit without saving,
esc, :wqto save your changes.)

nfs-kernel-serveris installed on the computers at both ends of the connection. (You will probably have to restart for it to take effect.)
# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported # to NFS clients. See exports(5). # # Example for NFSv2 and NFSv3: # /srv/homes hostname1(rw,sync,no_subtree_check) hostname2(ro,sync,no_subtree_check) # # Example for NFSv4: # /srv/nfs4 gss/krb5i(rw,sync,fsid=0,crossmnt,no_subtree_check) # /srv/nfs4/homes gss/krb5i(rw,sync,no_subtree_check) #

...listing the directory to be shared, each computer you wish to allow access, and whether you want read-write or read-only privilege. For example, I'm allowing machine "gateway" to have RW access to my home directory on the laptop, but "lphoto" can only read it.
mkdir otherdirto create a mount point.
sudo mount [url] otherdirwhere [url] is of the form "machine://path". For example,
otherdiron the local computer.
