I have 1 PC (Intel core i3-8100/16GB) and 1 laptop (core i5), installed Ubuntu Budgie 19.10 on the laptop and upgraded the PC from 19.04 to 19.10. The IP address of the PC is 192.168.88.10.
The PC had a clean 19.04 install. I did not mess with Firewall as I am really still a noob.
Both are on the same network, connected via LAN to 1 router. I also connected both computers directly to each other with 1 ethernet cable and set IP addresses manually. It didn’t change the following:
On the PC, called FujitsuServer:
I enabled Settings > Sharing: Screen Sharing and Media Sharing.
I installed a Brother printer via USB (works fine) and shared it through CUPS.
On the laptop, I can’t access the PC:
- I can find the printer, but I am unable to print anything.
- When I go to 192.168.88.10:631 I expect to see the CUPS webUI of the PC, but it times out.
- Using Remmina, I can find the vnc server but even when I input the address manually (192.168.88.10:5900) it is forever trying to connect.
- When I open the Files > Network, I see “FujitsuServer” but clicking on it gives me “Connection Refused”.
Am I missing something?
It looks like some kind of security measure on the PC is preventing a connection to be made, although discovery does work (something with Avahi/mdns doing its job).
But I have no clue how to get more information/debug this issue.
