Greetings all.. My head is about to explode with all this information, so I'm going to try and be as informative about my setup as possible…
Anyway, I just purchased a MBWE I. I'm trying to get three things out of this drive.
1. ) Access thru My Computer in WinXP Pro on two laptops in a home office.
2. ) I would like to create two folders on the drive, one having access from one laptop exclusively and the other folder accessible from the other laptop exclusively.
3. ) Remote access to both folders from their respective laptops.
Speed hasn't been a concern to me.. Things are slow, but I'm only transferring pictures.. So i can set it to copy and walk away.
I've gone thru what I believe to be a successful launch of ssh on the drive, however I think for some reason, it's not reloading each time I reboot. I'm also working behind a Linksys WRT54G router and both laptops have AVG ISS installed. When mapping the drives each time, I have to temporarily disable the firewall. Once the drives are mapped and found, I can re enable the firewall and everything works ok. Sort of. I created two shared folders using the WebAdmin, however, Win Explorer doesn't see these folders. I try to log into them by remapping using the folder names, but the system says the folders can't be found.
Anyway, if someone can lead me in the right direction to create a solution for these three needs, I would really appreciate it. Of course, security in all this is also wanted. I have a number of Live CD's and Putty. But i don't have a working knowledge of Linux. I can make my way thru with "how-to's" and pages of reading material. Thanks again.
