I installed exactly as you said. Now what? The application is in my
computer, but what do I do to make it work. I must have to type
something in somewhere to make the connection, but I have the same
problem with samba and fish. With fish, I type what I am told to type
and it doesn't work. With Samba I don't know what to do after it is
installed to get it to work. With openssh-server, I type it in the
terminal and a page full of stuff I don't understand comes on the screen.
Using Konqueror, here is what I type in the address bar for fish:
fish://192.168.0.102 That is the address of my old computer. This is
what comes on the screen:
The requested operation could not be completed

The name that you typed, , may not exist: it may be incorrectly typed.
There may have been a problem with your network connection.
There may have been a problem with your network configuration if you
have been accessing the Internet with no problems recently, this is
Check your network connection status.
Contact your appropriate computer support system, whether the system
adminsistrator, or technical support group for further assistance.
And since I finally got a ping this morning from one to the other and
back again, I know that I am connected. Both computers connect with the
Internet using a browser and email. I can search the web without problem.
I am not challenging anyone's intelligence or technical ability, I only
suggest that the actual problem has not been identified, and I am the
least able to find it. You may be tired reading the posts, but I am
more tired of posting. Each of you is only burdened by the posts I
reply to you. I have to write each of you over and over and over,
because the things you have suggested have not worked.
It has been the same for every different application I have installed.
Please. Tell me what I can do to get a successful result.
