I started help for this but the person doesn't know how suse does things. Here is the thread if you what to see what is started.
I want to get some files from a laptop to a desktop. It was suggested to me to do an ftp server. It is not working. I installed the ftp stuff in yast on the desktop pc, but I am not sure what else I need to do to get it up and running. I have a linksys router with 4ports. That is were both are connected. When I type in ftp://desktop
ip on the laptop, I get "could not connect to host desktop ip".
Am I making somthing simple, complicated? Is there a better way?
