    maybe somebody could help me with such a question - I have two computers connected to the same router; one is a notebook with Kubuntu12.04 (wireless connection to the router) and the other one is a PC with Fedora17 (wired connection).
    The point is how the best communicate these two machines to see each other disks ? I would like to mount disks from Kubuntu so that Fedora can see it and vice versa. The connection should work independently of Internet access, even if router has no connection to the Internet it shouldn't affect this connection.
    I have no idea how to make it happen and where to start or even what should I look for.
    Can anybody help ?
    Thanks a lot in advance !

    You should be looking for NFS (Network File System).
    With NFS you can export folders to the network. Other computers can then mount the network drive in their own filesystem.

    TLDP is always a good place to start: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/NFS-HOWTO/server.html
