What do you guys use to transfer large amounts of files between two computers?
I'm trying to help out a friend with a potato of a computer. No working USB ports, and for some reason, home networks won't work on it.
I could always go through something like Dropbox and do it chunk by chunk but if there's a faster way i'd much rather.
So /g/, any tips?
>usb between 2 pcs
>home networks don't work
what does that mean? anyway, there's a way to connect 2 pcs without a router but you need a particular ethernet cable, the simplest way is to connect both to a router and if the windows sharing doesn't work use something like babyFTP, start the server on the computer you have your files in select the folder you want and then use the other pc as a client
incredibly slow even on the fastest internet connection you'll find
Does sshfs work well between two windows-based machines?
So I try to set up a homegroup but the laptop isn't showing up in the file directory where my roommates computers are. I've tried tinkering with it but to no avail.
Read above for why.
I'll try babyFTP if I can't get the homegroup working for some reason.
remember to check the options, i don't know if you know but on windows to access an ftp server just write on the topbar of explorer ftp://localipoftheserver:port
you have to know the ip of the server of course and the port the server is using, remember to allow the anonymous access or it won't work
Fucking lol at that webm. Never seen that before.
I don't know, OP...couldn't you hook up the hard drive to the newer computer and transfer that way? I've never been in that position before.
We were going to be edgy and use our own server. Roommate used to work at a school and they upgraded, so we took one.
We haven't ever used it, though, so we don't remember the admin password and can't remotely access it.
The IP should just be the IP of the computer, right?
