How can I find one file in other machine?

Hi all,
I logged in one machine. I want to find one file in other machine. However, I don't know exactly which and where the machine is. I used nmap command to search all available hosts in this network range. I got two available machines through this action. But I still can't find the file I want to access. Anyone has any idea about that? Thanks

Possibly you should login to that machine.

And then do find over there !!

The question is that I don't own any information for other computer. The only thing currently I have is the thing I used to log in. I must use this information to find file in other machine. Can I do this by just this information? Thanks

After logging in to the remote server, if you want to find 'sample.txt' from root, then do the following

find / -name 'sample.txt'

The question is that I don't know exactly where and which the machine is. I have used find command to search if this file is existed in this remote file. But it didn't exist here. So the file is existed in other machine. Can I use this remote server I just logged to find the file in other machine? Have any idea for that? Thanks

Hi. If your user is wellcomed in the other machine (exists in file rhosts), maybe you can use "rsh host -c command / remote shell".

If you've got legitimate access to the other machine, use the find command given above. If you don't have access to that machine, please give us a good reason why you need to access it. Otherwise I'll invoke Rule 12
