Use Samba or OpenSSH

If you want to host (or have access to) network folders that can be accessed with Windows in Linux systems you can use Samba[1]. You just have to install and configure it which can be very tricky.
On the other hand if you want to have access between Linux computers you can use OpenSSH which is already included in most of the Linux distributions.
