This is a very simple problem to solve. Get yourself a ripway account. http://ripway.com and upload your files to there. Then when you want to send your friend a file, link them to the file's link and it will initiate a download. If you do not like this method, you can use the old fashioned method of sending e-mail attachments to each other.

Good Luck. :D

...or you could use FTP (you set up an FTP server on your box and give your neighbor your IP address)

...or you could use an instant messenger protocol (i sometimes do this on windows when both boxes in a lan have internet access but fail to auto-detect each other in the network environment)

...or you could use Samba which allows to access or create windows network shares with a linux system

Hello!

This could be made very easily with a Samba Client for your OS. Google Samba or smb-client for Fedora, install it and set it up. After that you can access any shared folder, simply with your web browser:)

when the other box is a linux box too (or got netcat for windows installed) you can do it the hacker way:

On the receiving system you type

Code: Select all

nc -l -p 1234 > foo.txt
Then you type on the sending system

Code: Select all

nc ***.***.***.*** 1234 < foo.txt
(replace the stars with the IP address of the receiving system) and the file foo.txt is transfered.
