    Filesharing via Slax

    I'm setting up a system for students to meet the ICT Diploma "build a network" requirement. So I can leave the workstations untouched I'm using live Linux - Slax on USB keys, running 3 stations and a printer on their own switch. All works a treat except for one thing : although the stations can happily ping each other I can't get any filesharing to work. NFS is running, each machine is sharing a folder with it, but none of them can "see" each other - i.e. Remote Places > Local Network remains empty. Any ideas? I've loooked at all the obvious settings including IPtables but no joy. Anyone know if Slax has anything inherent built in which would prevent one Slax machine seeing another? Probably blindingly obvious to all you Linux gurus...

    Yeah, it's a shame but I'm reaching impasse point with NFS.

    What you need is for someone who's REALLY clever to reply to your post, not just Batman. I'm only good for brute force and ignorance
