Without mounting a drive - either ftp or scp.

scp is more secure so I would use that.

Arrow FTP

I normally use FTP, it's not as secure as SCP, but if it's your own private network, then it doesn't matter. Besides, not having to use encryption speeds things up too (save all the encryption processing).

1. Make sure you have FTPD installed on the server. If not, download the wu-ftpd server (my fav ftp server) and install it.

2. Make sure it's a running service. Use the following command for this:

ntsysv

3. On the client machine, make sure you have FTP installed. This is almost always installed, but you can check by issuing this command:

rpm -q ftp

4. On the client machine, issue this command:

ftp client_ip_address

If you need help with the FTP client, read the man page for FTP (man ftp)
