connecting a windows box to a linux box
« on: May 12, 2018, 05:29:03 am »
I am having trouble connecting to my Linux Crunchers. I used to use teamviewer, but it has stopped working. So I heard about BT and thought I would try it since I thought all I had to do is type in the IP's.

Unfortunately, that has not worked. I have entered IP, MAC ID and the computer names, for 2 of my linux boxes. I have 1 monitor, with single connection, between the 3 linux crunchers.

I see BT attempting to connect to the box w/ the monitor, in the event log.

I am a linux newby. I do not have nautilus on the box, can't seem t find it for download. What do I have to do to have the connections work, on 3 Linux Mint 18 machines
