When I need access to the files on the local network I usually go for SSH or Samba.
Destination host has to have SSH package installed, in order to accept SSH connections:
sudo apt update sudo apt install openssh-server
Authenticate to destination machine and access destination files:
ssh [email protected]_ip_address
destination_pass when prompted.
On destination machine install necessary packages:
sudo apt-get install -y samba samba-common python-glade2 system-config-samba
Open nautilus, right-click on the folder you want to share and choose the Local Network Share option. When the File Sharing dialog opens, select Share this folder.
Setup samba password:
smbpasswd -a username
Open nautilus -> Other locations -> click on remote machine -> authenticate with user and smbpasswd.
Access shared folder via terminal
