programme for windows like fish:// in linux.


Running linux FC4.
Network file transfer is very very easy with fish:// in konqueror.So i love linux so much.There are some stupid windows are running.Is there any possibility to transfer a file from windows and put it in windows like fish:// programme

Installing samba,sharing and mounting it is time consumming.
So i look for good programmes like fish://

Thanks.

'fish://' is not a program, it is just a way of tell konqueror how to deal with the infomation that you are giving it. And the end of it it will be using samba.

If you are looking at having shared folders like in windows then you need to use samba. But if you want to just transfer a few files now and then you could look into things like sftp (part of ssh) and ftp.

I do not know of any freely available ssh servers for windows but there is a very good client called putty (you can find it here http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/).

Now on your linux machine setup and start sshd (the server), then connect to it from your windows machine (the client).

sftp is fine for a few files every now and then, but if you wanted to share something like a directory full of music then you should setup samba. Go to http://us2.samba.org/samba/ and read the documents there.
