Question Transfer files between AQEMU (Windows 7) & Fedora 20

Hello everybody!

I hope you are fine and in a good state of health.

I have Fedora 20 installed on my Laptop computer and I have installed the AQEMU virtual machine software and installed Windows 7 in it. I have a few applications which won't run on Fedora 20 properly (even using Wine or Playonlinux etc..) hence I had to use them on Windows 7.


1. I CAN transfer the file from Fedora to Windows 7 by first creating an image file (.iso) and then mounting it in the CD-ROM in the Win 7 (via AQEMU settings).

2. The PROBLEM IS that I don't know how do I transfer the file FROM Windows 7 to Fedora 20.

I hope you can help me solve the issue. Thanks for your time.

Anxiously waiting for your reply.

Unfortunately, I am not very familiar with Windows and have no idea how to transfer files from it, however I do know that Windows can use shared folders on a network. So, what I would do is turn on SAMBA sharing in Fedora and share some folder. Then log in to the Windows VM and map that shared folder as a network file share. Place your files into the shared folder, and retrieve from the Fedora side.

You could also grab puTTY for windows, which presumably includes 'scp', and you could just scp files over to your Fedora side via the little internal Qemu network. Specifically:

qemu-kvm [all your usual qemu options go here] -net nic -net user -redir tcp:22122::22
'net nic' creates a network interface within the virtual machine
'net user' gives permission for the user within the virtual machine to utilize the networking tools
'redir tcp:22122::22' sets up a port forwarding trick so that when you point something at port 22122 of your (Fedora) computer, it gets passed on to port 22 of the virtual machine.

So reboot your windows VM and then you should be able to access it via ssh:

ssh -p22122 you@localhost
scp -P22122 you@localhost

And you will reach your virtual machine.

One of those two methods should work.
