Unhappy Sharing Files - Fedora With Fedora

I know this might seem stupid, but I can't seem to connect my 2 PCs to share a folder (directory)

The both have Fedora 11 and they are connected through a Linksys WRT54G (one on LAN and the other on Wi Fi)

Please tell me which steps should I follow.

Thanks

You have several technologies to choose from:
- NFS
- Samba
- ssh

I find ssh to be the easiest, and most reliable. It's slower than the other two, but it's encrypted (which is a bonus due to the wireless connection.) To do this Perform the following:
On the "server":
1) intstall openssh-server using Add/Remove Programs or yum
2) ensure ssh is allowed through the firewall with System->Administration->Firewall (check the ssh checkbox and click apply)
On the client:
1) (optional, but if you don't you'll have to use the IP address instead of he host name) from the command line type: "su -c 'gedit /etc/hosts'". In the file that opens add a new line to the end and enter the IP of the server [tab] server's hostname (ex: "192.168.1.7 gandolf")
2) Go to Places-Connect to Server... select ssh. Enter the pertinent information (server and username are required, port is not). Have fun accessing the files from the server on the client.

dolphin is the file manager for KDE, since you don't know what dolphin is, you're probably using GNOME. If you want to try dolphin you can installing kdebase using add/remove Software (it will appear as "K Desktop Environment 4 - Core Files".)
