So as I understand. I would have to have samba to use between two linux 
boxes in order to send or recieve files from my desktop and to do things 
on the desktop when I need to do work on the desktop from my laptop.
I have the desktop setup to run my ham radio stuff and running a gateway.
I'm disabled and is stuck in bed most of the time and I run my laptop 
when I'm in bed and that is why I need to do what I mentioned above.
