Currently, computer equipment is part of our daily life and it is common to have more than one PC in our home or workplace, even if they run various operating systems; We could also include in this category mobile devices such as Tablets and Smartphones.
In this scenario it is quite feasible that is intended to wirelessly share resources between them in order to access data or files hosted on other devices physically. In this tutorial we will address this issue once known how it works, And we will try to apply solutions to Deepin.
Share folders between Deepin teams
Nothing more simple, since the system is pre-configured to interact with a pair, using the Samba protocol preinstalled on; Simply clicking the right mouse button on the folder and open the property sheet for sharing and can view and operate it from another computer with Deepin.
We will only limit that the predefined name and used for the network where we will operate, is the same as in windows » WORKGROUP »Which means that any computer under this domain and connected to the same router should be automatically detected. If you want to change the name of the workgroup, open the terminal with sudo Deepin-editor /etc/samba/smb.conf and in "Global Settings" you will find the line that references it (workgroup = WORKGROUP) edit it by changing what is in capital letters, save and restart the system.
Note: Deepin-editor is the text editor.
Share folders between Windows and Deepin
The procedure of sharing a folder in windows is more than known but here we will find another problem, since a while ago Samba changed its protocol to work with Windows 10 and that can prevent you from seeing your Windows network in many GNU / Linux distributions ; in deepin you will surely see a message similar to this.
To fix the problem, we edit with sudo deepin-editor /etc/samba/smb.confand we add the following line in the section «Global Settings» max client protocol = NT1 Also if you want to share folders that are on external drives or ntfs you will have to add another line so that these can be opened from Windows or Android force user = your usernamenow save and restart the system or run sudo restart /etc/init.d/samba
As the image reflects, we now see, the teams in our LAN wifi and within them the shared folders; without having to resort to tricks like defining IPs in Samba or routes in fstab.
Share folders between Android and Deepin
For the case there are different alternatives in particular I use the method explained in the Connect KDE Tutorial since it provides other functions but since the theme is sharing folders, let's get busy.
First we must create a Samba server on Android; for this we will install Lan Drive from Playstore. It has a very simple interface that will facilitate the task; In the section Users, you can create them and define passwords or use the option Anonymous. In sharedYou can add folders, in addition to which the application is defined by default.
Finally you will be able to start the server from Startto enable deepin to discover the shared folders on your Android.
Note: We have not referred to MAC or Iphone environments since in my case I do not have any Apple device but we will surely add it later.
