9.0 Accessing Network Resources
From your desktop, you can access files and directories or certain services
on remote hosts or make your own files and directories available to other
users in your network. SUSE® Linux Enterprise Desktop offers various different ways of accessing
and creating network shared resources:
- Network Browsing
Your file manager, Konqueror, lets you browse your network for shared
resources and services. Learn more about this in Section 9.2,
Accessing Network Shares.
- Sharing Folders in Mixed Environments
Using Konqueror, configure your files and folders to share with
other members of your network. Make your data readable or writable for
users from any Windows or Linux workstation. Learn more about this in
Sharing Folders in Mixed Environments.
- Managing Windows Files
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop can be configured to integrate into an existing Windows
network. Your Linux machine then behaves like a Windows client. It takes
all account information from the Active Directory domain controller, just
as the Windows clients do. Learn more about this in Section 9.4,
Managing Windows Files.
- Configuring and Accessing a Windows Network Printer
You can configure a Windows network printer through the KDE Control
Center. Learn how to configure this in Section 9.5,
Configuring and Accessing a Windows Network Printer.
- Configuring Shortcuts to Network Folders
By creating shortcuts to remote network folders (FTP, WebDAV, Windows
Network Drives, and SSH), interacting with them can be greatly
simplified. Learn how to configure this in Section 9.6,
Configuring Shortcuts to Network Folders.
- Configuring a Small Web Server
If you need a simple way to share information with others, set up a lean
Web server. Learn how to do this in Section 9.7,
Configuring and Using a Small Web Server.
