Thread: Transfer Files Over A Lan

  1. #1
    i am looking to tranfer files over a lan windows itself will not do this even though the computers share a connection and can play multiplayer games so does anyone know of a program which will allow me to transfer files directly from one pc to another.
    Many thanx

    Thanks but im already connected via newtork cards but for some reason it wont let me transfer files between them. I was thinking more alond the lines of a good ftp program so allow me to do transfer the files directly between them.

    You must make a folder shared on at least one of the pc's.

    GO TO THE FOLDERS YOU WANT TO SHARE LEFT CLICK-SHARE AND SECURITY-SHARE THIS FOLDER ON THE NETWORK + ALLOW NETWORK USES TO CHANGE MY FILES-APPLY-OK
    DO THIS TO ALL THE FILES YOU WANT TO SHARE ON BOTH COMPUTERS

    I AM ASSUMING YOU ARE USING WINXP

    There's a networking guide in xp, it has the option of creating a config disk for networking that can be used on another OS such as ME, try the guide.
