No, as I didn't know about that or where to look as I since using 16.04 I'm lost, But now I've changed the settings.

Sorry, I've got mixed up there, I changed 16.04's settings and not 14.04. I'll just use Teamviewer to change them on 14.04.

I'll have to remove the automount settings for one of the drives as it's power (plug) has failed, before I can try a reboot.

Thanks

Understandable, I can't see you sitting at the PC all day answerin questions on here.
I tried the commands and I still had to enter my password at boot.

I need to set my desktop PC to boot without needing to enter my password as I am mainly on my laptop and use teamviewer to access my desktop PC.

I never even knew there were any free VPN's.
I can try connecting to my other PC while not connected through the VPN.

Does it also matter if I'm doing it through the VPN?

Just had a thought, I've named the desktop & laptop the same (pooky2483), could that cause any problems?

My problem is I don't know Dolphin....

In the dolphin address bar of the remote PC, type:
Code: [Select]
fish://username@server_IP
and hit enter.

Where:-
username = a user account on the server
sever_IP = the IP address of the server

try this on your local network and tell me if you're able to browser the files.

if not, try
Code: [Select]
sftp://username@server_IP/



BTW, you will need to have openssh-server installed on the server.
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

I just get 'timeout' from both

I've managed to install exfat.
Earlier today, I had checked Synaptic package manager and it showed that it was installed, I just looked again and it was actually NOT installed.

I am unable to read exfat as I have taken the micro SD card out of my mobile as I was having trouble with my laptop having a stable connection.

The main one I need is exfat (for micro sd cards) and it has nothing in that column.

... But
That only works if I'm on the same network as the remote PC.
How do I go about viewing the remote PC's files when not on the same network?

Yes but I'd prefer browsing the files of the other computer in Dolphin on the PC I'm in front of.

I have set up samba to be able to view remote files in Dolphin but I am only able to read, not write. If we can get that sorted, I might be happy with things.
