OS problem.You can transfer files/folders if OS is same in both systems. Windows Xp or Vista. no idea about Linux.

what i basically want to know is how to make my system identifiable in a network?the router knows that my desktop is connected to itthe router knows that my laptop is connected to itbut the 2 systems dont know that the other system is also present...could you tell me how you could do this if i had windows on both the systems?how to make another system visible on a LAN network?

smaba is bit complex..............use ftp server in fedora u can get those very easily....

Ferdora has inbuilt ftp server and for windows try xligit ftp server both are free......

never mind please turn the dhcp down............

imean that keep 192.168.1.2 for dekstop and 192.168.1.3 for laptop ...

this will help u to figure it out....

try ftp server or try NFS( Network File server ) and keep the the domain as workgroup ....

think this will help u

thanks for the info kanishka...i appreciate that. i will try what i can do with ftp...but my ultimate objective was to let windows laptop access the printer connected to my fedora-desktop. samba is the perfect solution for this...
is there any other way to share a printer, besides samba?

BSNL 750 Home Plan
Is there any way to increase the download speed by connecting double lan connection to PC.Like,[Lan1 connection speed 250Kbps] + [Lan2 connection speed 250Kbps] + [WLAN connection speed 250Kbps] = 750 Kbps:iplay:
