Connecting a Ubuntu machine to a windows network
I am in the process of installing Ubuntu (9.0) onto a spare machine. I want to make the Ubuntu machine a part of my Windows network (which for the moment), consists of a single XP machine.
I want to do the following on my "network" (initially, it will be 1 Ubuntu machine and 1 XP machine) - and I am seeking some help on how to go about achieving these goals:
Share a printer, so that both machines can print documents
Be able to copy (*.cpp and *.php) source files from the XP machine to the Ubuntu machine Note: this is likely to be a one of requirement
Maintain a svn repository on the (newer) XP machine and use it (i.e. commit to the repository etc) from the Ubuntu machine
Transfer binary files from the XP machine to the Ubuntu machine
Note: The files though binary (and written on the XP box), will be read using the same library (but compiled for Linux), on the Ubuntu box.
Note2 : I will need to transfer these files daily
