Trio3b Posted March 8, 2008 Report Share Posted March 8, 2008 (edited) PC1 Mandrake 10.2 @ 192.168.10.1 PC2 Mandriva2008 @ 192.168.10.2 Connected on local LAN via ssh. I access files between the two PCs by invoking sftp://<address> from within Konqueror. I would like to allow office staff to use PC2/scanner combo to update one or two specific folders inside the home folder on PC1. I do not want them to have access to other folders within my home folder. I tried setting permissions on all the folders I want protected, but when I ssh in to PC1 from PC2, I am able to access all home folders on PC1....BAD! Any ideas on the best way to do this? Should I copy the one or two folders I want updated from PC1 to PC2 and then let them live on PC2 and be updated from there in which case I could then copy the folders back from PC2 to PC1, but then I would not know to what extent each file or folder within these directories had been updated. I suppose that when I copy these folders back to the original, Konq will alert me that some of the original folders and files already exist and I can choose to either overwrite all or autoskip files that are original, but this seems kind of sloppy and makes me nervous. Or should I leave these folders on PC1 and attempt to scan (using xsane) to to PC1 from PC2 . I don't even know if xsane will do this, but I can try. ( there are about 6-10 folders within each of these two main directories I want worked on, and they are nested about 4-6 folders deep within each of those.) Any suggestions on how to do this neatly without having scanned docs spread out on two PCs would be welcome. My main goal however is to limit access to only certain folders. If I copy those working folders to PC2, then my permissions issues are moot, but would still like to know how to do it.
