I have a rather large file(s), which I'd like to share between two Linux boxes on the same network. I'm somewhat familiar with scp, but how do I configure it on the host? That is, how does the host allow the client to connect? Or, is it that when you login with scp, or ssh, that since you login with username and password, just use a username and password which are on the host machine?
That is, just login to the host with an existing user/password?
I'd be interested in a GUI, along the lines of Windows File Sharing, if that's possible.
