How can I copy some files from a windows machine to Linux machine ?
If you can network the two computers together you could then transfer over the network using SAMBA in linux.You don't say how many files, total size of the transfer, or file formats which would be helpful to formulate a simple plan.
I hope you know how to share a directory in windows. So after sharing it from windows, come to the linux box and type the following command. It will prompt you for the windows password. Just fire it and access your files of windows from linux. i dont know the impact of enabling iptables, firewall and selinux here. you can try by disabling all these things also.
mount -t cifs //windows/share /mnt --verbose -o user=username
service iptables stop
setup - to disable firewall
/etc/selinux/config - set SELINUX entry to disabled and a reboot is required.
Copying files issue has been solved. Another issue - While copying files from Windows, I logged in to Linux as myself (LDAP) and copied the files. Now I have to copy these files to another Linux user. I get a permission denied.
