Description Bruce Brackbill 2008-05-19 00:37:31 EDT
Description of problem: 'Personal File Sharing' doesn't share files with others on the LAN. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-user-share-0.31-1.fc9.i386 avahi-0.6.22-10.fc9.i386 How reproducible: Choose System-> Preferences -> Internet and Network -> "Share Public Files On Network" on the machine (~/Public) I want to share. Actual results: No Shares Under Places -> Network on the OTHER machines on the LAN. Expected results: See shared folder on the other machines on the LAN. Additional info: Things appear to be running fine ( Avahi, Apache ) and I've opened up UDP Port 5353 on both the serving machine ( Server ) and receiving machine ( Client ) . With 5353 open, the Server can see the Share ( Places-> Network ), but the Client cannot. I can do a "connect to server" on the Client and manually enter the IP and the "random Apache port" of the Server, but this kind of defeats the whole "one click/ share" that "Share Public Files On Network" is aiming for. These bugs look relevant: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=446828 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=444427 ... but it is still not working for me even when I open Port 5353. The client is a wireless laptop running b43-pci-bridge.

OK, I'm a little further along. It looks like I had opened Port 5353 "TCP" and not UDP on the client. Now that I've opened up UDP 5353 on the client, Nautilus now sees "Bruce's Public files on localhost.localdomain" under Network". But if I click on it I get: "Unable to mount location HTTP Error: Cannot connect to destination" I'v tried "Share Public Files On Network" with and without passwords. The username on the Client and Server machines are both Bruce if that matters.
