Well, now that my router is working and both machines (desktop and laptop) can see the Internet, it’s time to get the 2 machines talking to one another. I was able to set up a simple network, and I can copy files from one to the other using ssh. But all this networking stuff is new to me; pages like this and this. Ideally, I’d like to be able to transfer files from one machine to the other using gFTP, it would be basically the same as uploading files to a website. Not sure how to make this happen, but hopefully it won’t be too difficult to set up.
Anyway, things are working well in this area. Hopefully I can continue to climb the learning curve….
