For learning and as a test, I like to try making a home-network between my eReader and my PC.
I work with Linux Fedora 17.
Here in Belgium, I have a Telenet wireless modem with a build-in router.
My computer is connected with a cable.
My eReader tablet is WiFi connected.
On my computer I have installed Samba and after starting the network, I can see the 2 devices, my PC and the eReader are connected:
 [[email protected] ~]$ yum list installed | grep samba
samba.i686                          2:3.6.9-96.fc17.1            @updates       
samba-client.i686                   2:3.6.9-96.fc17.1            @updates       
samba-common.i686                   2:3.6.9-96.fc17.1            @updates 
[[email protected] ~]$ sudo /etc/init.d/network restart
[sudo] password for gastonv:
Restarting network (via systemctl):                        [  OK  ]
[[email protected] ~]$ ping

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 126.677/246.909/366.007/89.504 ms

On my Archos 70b eReader, with an app called Network Discovery, I see my computer gastonv:

But I cannot see any directory or file from my PC on my tablet.
Now, I can read documents as a pdf-book with calibre or with dropbox.
With my eReader I like to see documents directly from a home-network, e.g. pdf and other documents.
Please my question:
On my tablet, is that possible?
So yes, what have I to do more in order to see them?
Many thanks in advance for each answer,
Gaston Verhulst.
