send/receive files from one laptop to another using ftp HELP

Hey guys, i've been looking over the internet and cannot find an easy guide or any specific info about transferring files between two laptops. I have currently installed the ftp packets, but cannot get to transfer anything between them. Can anyone guide me in the right way?? THANX in advance.

You need to provide more info first. Which distro are you using? Also, what is the network configuration, i.e., both laptops connected on your internal network?
