Chapter 10. Networking with Linux > Sharing Network Resources

Sharing Network Resources

As with other network operating systems, you can share files and printers on a Linux computer. Linux actually provides a number of different ways that you can share resources on the network. For example, you can create an FTP server on any Linux computer and use it to serve up files to other users on the network. The easiest way to configure the FTP server is using the KWuFTPd utility on the KDE desktop. It allows you to configure anonymous and guest logons to the FTP server.

Using an FTP server on the network allows you to provide files across different operating system platforms. The only software required on your client machines is a Web browser or other FTP client.
