what's the best way to swap files between directly connected linux and windows boxes?
 
Hi.
I have Linux box and Windows box directly connected (linux does the routing as well), and I wonder what is the best way to swap files between the systems? I run frp server on my wondowsbox and use ftp command from linux at the moment, but there's gotta be a more elegant way...
thank you.

With Samba, you share a directory and both machines can use it. Equivalent to "network neighborhood". Another method useful for readonly is to serve the stuff as a webpage and have everyone on the LAN browse to it. You may need to enable "indexes" in Apache. You can also do open SSH which allows users to log into the other machine. scp and sftp are included. With ftp, everything going over the network is insecure.
