|I attempting to network a XP pro box to a Linux (Ubuntu) box and image the entire Linux hard drive. |
Using a ethernet crossover cable, I was able to get the 2 machines to ping back and forth (after some trial and error). I also got the Linux box to see the XP C:\ drive and to access files on the XP box. But…I am still fighting to get the XP box to see anything on the Linux box. Because of the nature of what I am attempting to do (I will be using DD or FTK to image the Linux (Mint) box), I do not want to download any kind of file sharing software on the Linux box. I know I should be able to do this, but I’ve been fighting with this piece of it for the better part of yesterday through today and I am finally to the point of asking for advise. Any help would be appreciated.
