View Full Version : LAN Issues w/ FC2
24th May 2004, 11:15 PM
I have a large image file on a Mac machine. I would like to have it on my Linux FC2 machine. Both machines are connected via a LAN.
How do I get it from there to here?
It's too big for email. :(
I'm having issues setting up the proper permissions for an FTP transfer. (Though I had it working fine under FC1).
I'm having issues accessing the Mac from my Linux machine via the usual LAN method. (Though I had it working fine under FC1).
Are there some fancy new options that need to be setup w/ FC2 that I'm missing?
Can anyone point me to a tutorial on this topic? A URL or how to would be appreciated.

If you have an FTP or HTTP server on the Mac simply configure the server to allow clients to access the file. Then use an FTP client (like gFtp) or or browser (for the HTTP case) to get the file from the server.
Is your Mac running System-X? If it is, I believe you can also configure a NFS share on that machine.

Ok if your using FTP what server are you using? As long as the file is in your home dir and you own it I would think you could just log in and get it. As far as the Mac goes are you using samba, Atalk, NFS, or FTP?
This should be pretty easy just need a bit more info...

It's not my Mac, sadly, and I'm completely Mac Illiterate. I've been trying to push it to the FC2 box (mine) from the Mac and pull it from the Mac to the FC2 box.
I would burn it to CD at this point just to get it done, but damn if I can even figure out how to get a freaking CD into a Mac! And there is the question about compatible file systems between Mac and Linux, future need to do this again, etc... I figure I may as well get this sorted out now.
I've even tried to move the file from the mac to the Windows machine and then to the Linux box, but I can't access the Windows machine either.
I would upload the file from the Mac to my web server, but I can't connect to my webserver from the Mac (and it's not even local!)
The fellow that owns and works on the Mac is a genius where a Mac is concerned, but he knows as much about Linux as I do about a Mac. To boot, he's at work till 4am.
I can get the Mac to connect to my machines FTP server, but even with the ftp/pub directory set to chmod 777 I can't upload to it - though I can log on to it properly.

I can connect via SSH and navigate to find the file in the Darwin command line.
Now what? :)

well that was fun, interesting and I look forward to playing with it more in the future. Alas, I can't move the file off of the local system.

OKay. I turned on the ftp server on the Mac. I can log in. I can see the first tree of the structure on the Mac. I clicked on a folder... I'm still waiting for something to come up... 5 minutes... 7 minutes... still nothing.

I hooked up another Windows machine (XP) and can connect to it, login to it and I can pull files from it just fine.
When I try to access the mac machine it just sits there. Blank screen. No login, no folders...

I sent it to the XP machine and then to the Linux FC2 machine. I have it now. What a hassle.

Next time, you could use sftp to grab the file from the server running ssh.

It seems like an unnecessary step considering file transfers over a LAN should work through the file browser. I just can't seem to get it to work that way.

The coolest way to transfer the file is using 'fish'.
in KDE call up the file browser and type fish://192.168.1.100 (or whatever ip address the computer running ssh is at). Or if you want to log in to the remote machine as a different user then something like fish://username@hostname. You will be prompted for a username and password for a valid user on the remote computer. Once logged in you can browse the remote system via the file browser.
When you want to transfer a file just drag it into a local konqueror window (in file management mode) or better yet open a new tab and browse to the local directory you want to place the file in and just cut and paste.
"fish" is basically a graphical sftp/scp client protocol for konqueror.

Well $&^7 - fish worked like a charm! Thank you :)

Ok, what am I doing wrong? I get the error that "fish is not a registered protocol"
25th May 2004, 04:35 AM
hmm... are you typing it into the konqueror location bar?
If you're having trouble check out this little tutorial:
Hope this helps.

Cool, I've never used fish:// before, awesome! Thanks for the tip :)

I was using the mozilla browser, not Konqueror. Duh.
