If I open Nautilus on my desktop or laptop and double click on Network I
can see entries for them in Nautilus and they can share files, etc. The
tablet does not show up in Nautilus when I do this and I have not been
able to find any way on the tablet to interact with the other machines
on the network.
I don't do much network setup so I never though of that. I found the
tablets ip address and I can ping it. I can see nothing on the tablet
that would let me try to ping the desktop.
The tablet is pingable, how do I get Nautilus to find it?

My desktop is wired also.
