Thread: transfer files from laptop to PC

  1. #1
    Hi guys,

    I seriously need some help. For the past years I ve been using a laptop. However I just got a PC with a big HD and I want to transfer my files from the laptop to my PC. I am at a university campus -- so bandwith is not a problem at all. The problem is that the laptop and the PC use the internet without network/domain login. Thus, they are not connected in a LAN. And here is the problem, the univesrity has a shitty hardware firewall so nothing is visible in the outside internet. Lets say when i use emule -- I am firewalled, DC++ -- Im passive, almost all ports are blocked.

    SO to transfer my files from the laptop to the PC it would have been easy just to use DC++ for example, however it does not support passive to passive connection, nor do any other p2p program i know

    I tried today to mess with ftp servers but could not get anything working -- tried bulletproof ftp server and serv-u...

    SO I was hoping guys u can give me some advice

    thanks in advance!

    KurtCocain.

    Yeah. Why would you need the internet at all to tranfer the files?

    Just connect them like IKE said.

    OK if I connect them with the ethernet cable do I have to do any other setup ? Do I need to make a domain for both of them or somthing ?
