communication between PCs
Hallo, all,
There are two computers in my lab, both of which have access to the LAN of my institute. On one computer is Debian Sarge, and WinXP SP2 for the other. I'd like to know how to access one computer from the other to transfer files.

Thanks in advance, win2s

configure Sambsa on the Debian box, and you can create a shared folder windows can access, the debian box could also browse windows shares..

Run winscp on the windows machine and you can connect to the Debian box via SSH and copy files back and forth or use the command line pscp utility from putty.

configure an FTP server on windows or debian and ftp files back and forth..

you can use ftp 'machine name' if they are connected on the same network.
when transferring from windows to linux you will need to enter 'bin' (binary)(this is always good to do before transfers) after connecting to the ftp, because windows' default transfer sets files as ascii.
once connected you can transfer files using mget and mput

mget - gets files from other machine
mput - puts files on other machine from local node

you can use ftp from command prompt in windows and xterminal in GNU
to exit ftp type 'quit'
