How do I network a Suse installed machine with other computers, specifically Red hat Linux?
This is for a school project, and I can’t find any pages that tell how to network a Suse to other computers except how to use a printer.

Hi,
Irrespective of the distro you are using, by just setting a IP address to both these systems, you can network them. For simplicity ni accessing, you can add the names of both these systems in the /etc/hosts file of the other system. If you want to access the contents of one system from the other, you need to do a NFS mount. For this you need to configure one as the NFS server and the other as the NFS client.
For setting the IP address, you can either choose the network-admin GUI, or the interface file which will be somewhere(depends on the distribution) in the /etc folder.

  1. Probably because of the fact that all Linux flavors share one thing in common. They were designed to network out of the box so to speak. Windows and Mac both did this as an afterthought. There isn’t a version of Linux that can’t network. By default the OS install for SUSE should install networking and enable it. You should not have to intervene in the process.

  2. Networking is just a matter of configuring the ethernet or wireless adapter to join the network.

    Most networks have DHCP, and SuSE does a decent amount of autodetection. So in the case of ethernet – just plugin. For wireless, there should be an icon on the desktop’s system tray you can click to search for networks you can join.

    Once connected to the network, you can use whatever services are available on it (e.g. use remote printers) – but the details of how you do that depends on which services you want to use.
