my similar event was farting about for a few hours getting 2 linux machines to share a directory.
not hard but not having done it for a while I googled "linux file sharing", sure enough got results.

plenty of results, spent a couple of hours setting it up and start moving some files (the latter took most of the time), the files were moving really slow and figured it had to be possible to do it much faster.

of course, when I googled the first results were for the smb sharing coz most people want to share with winduds, what I really needed for linux<->linux was nfs ... corrected that... much much faster.

yeah smb is way slower... coz linux needs to convert it to the inefficient windows smb protocol, send it, and at t'other end unconvert it from smb back to unix form (i.e. the owners, permissions, dates, file sizes, even coz useless windows demands it check for exclusive file access ect).

anyway I blame winduds: coz ms' pathetic implementations of both file system and networking; if they had just gone with the standard like everyone else my time wouldn't have been wasted. (I sympathise with all of the network admins that have to deal with windows servers in real life.)
