This test case describes making files available for reading in the local network

How to test

  1. Open the Personal File Sharing preferences under System ➛ Preferences ➛ Personal File Sharing and turn on file sharing on the network. Set the password to be always required, and enter a password.
  2. Copy one or more files and folders to $HOME/Public. Try to use nautilus for this.
  3. Now log into another computer on the same local network.
  4. On the second computer, open nautilus 'Network' window. You can do this via Places ➛ Network or by finding it in the menus of an open nautilus window or by entering "network://" in nautilus 'Open Location' dialog.
  5. Make sure that the 'Public' folder on the first machine shows up and that you can open it after entering the password that you set on the first computer.
  6. Verify that you can copy files into the shared location from the second computer, and edit existing files.
  7. Copy a large file, e.g. an iso image, to the shared location.
  8. Go back to the first computer and verify that the files that you copied in the shared location on the second computer are now available locally. Ie you can still access them after disconnecting from the network.

Expected Results

What is reasonable?
Note that we ask for you to judge whether the system behaviour is 'reasonable' or not, without prescribing the exact outcome. If some aspect of the system behaviour is surprising or confusing to you, it is probably worth pointing out.
  • Expected results:
    1. Opening the shared folder fails unless the correct password is provided.
    2. Files in the shared location can be modified from another computer.
    3. It is possible to copy files to the shared location from another computer, which makes them locally available on the first computer.
    4. Copying large files to the shared location provides progress feedback and allows to cancel the operation.
