General :: Transfer Files Between Two Computers Connected By KVM

Nov 1, 2010

I have a Windows 7 Desktop and an Ubuntu Laptop connected with a KVM switch. I use the setup for software development, so I am constantly switching between the two, so I need a way to quickly transfer files between the two. I'm not sure if this is possible, but if I could connect them in a way where the OS of each mounts the hard drive of the other. Is there a way I could do this?

General :: Transfer Files Over A LAN Between Two Computers?

Aug 22, 2011

I want to transfer files (a music folder) between two Linux computers. After searching for the best way to do this, I've seen that there are lots of ways of doing this. I know this has been asked a lot, everywhere and all the time. The main problem with this is that there is no clear, recent consensus on one best way to do this task in 2011 for Linux beginners (even depending on some parameters).

So in the spirit of the Stack Exchange websites, I want this not to be related to my particular situation, but more of a guide to others as well on how to transfer files between two Linux computers over a local network. I think a wiki would be useful for many.

Here's what I found so far:

ssh
sshfs
scp
sftp
nfs
samba
giver

What is the easiest? Most flexible? Simplest? Best solution? What are the pros and cons of each? Are there other (better) options? What are the parameters in choosing the best method (solution might depend on number of files, filesize, easiness vs. flexibility, )?

Networking :: Scp - Two Computers - Can Only Transfer Files One Way?

Feb 13, 2009

I currently have two computers (one windows one linux) connected to each other via a crossover ethernet cable. Now, each computer can see each other and I can ping both ways. Also, I can ssh into the linux box from windows (putty, cygwin) as well as ssh into my windows machine from the linux box. Here's the problem: I can send files from my linux machine to my windows machine with no problems doing this:

scp this_file.txt windows_user@10.10.10.11:/cygdrive/c

however, I can't seem to send from windows (cygwin) to the linux machine. Here is what I see at cygwin x-term prompt:

$ scp that_file.txt jqweezy@10.10.10.10:/home/jqweezy
jqweezy@10.10.10.10's password:
Executing /etc/profile ...

Now, it seems like everything went fine. However when I look in /home/jqweezy that_file.txt is not there.

p.s. Don't know if this helps, but here is some extra info. Linux machine has only one NIC. Windows has two NICs, one NIC is setup for automatic network detection the other is setup for communication with linux machine via crossover cable (see above).

Ubuntu Networking :: Easiest Way To Get Computers Connected To Share Files?

Oct 24, 2010

I now have 3 desktop computers hard wired into my wireless router and another desktop plus 2 laptops connecting wireless. All are running Ubuntu 10.4 or 10.10. I have not had the chance to get them all upgraded yet. What is the easiest way to get these computers connected so that they can share files? Do I have to set up a server or is there a simpler way? I just want to be able to copy a file from one computer to another.

OpenSUSE Network :: Wired Router - Transfer Files Between Local Computers

Jun 4, 2011

Should I be able to transfer files between computers wired to the same router? Is the router bridging function used to transfer data between wired computers? I just got DSL and I'm new to networking. I have openSuse 11.4 on two computers plugged into a Belkin router. The internet connection to my ISP works from either computer. If I ping $HOSTNAME from either computer, the hostnames are different, but the IP address is the same which is that of my ISP. I only have the one router, but it has a bridging option. I don't know if it can do both bridging and routing simultaneously.

General :: Share Files Between 2 Fedora 14 Computers

May 8, 2011

Networking Problem Fedora 14 2.6.35.12-90.fc14.i686. I am trying to share files between 2 Fedora 14 computers , a desktop and a laptop, both located on my local DSL server. The laptop sees its public files and the public files folder on the desktop computer - looks fine. The desktop computer acts differently. Both systems show an entry of "unknown type" in the directory listing, for the public files directory. But whereas a right click on the directory entry on the laptop offers "open" the same operation on the desktop computer offers "open gedit". When I double click the entries on the laptop, entries appear on the main screen. If I double click the entries on the main screen, the directory contents are displayed. But, if I doubleclick the directory entries on the desktop computer 1- I get a black box that says there has been a crash in gvfs-1.6.6-1.fc14 and an error message box tells me Dbus error org.freedesktop.DBus.ERROR.NoReply: Message did not received a reply.

General :: Transfer A Zip File That Contains .txt Files Using Ftp Put?

Sep 13, 2011

I am transferring a file from a linux pc going to a windows ftp server using "ftp put". My file is a zip file that includes .txt files inside it. Here is what's happening when I transferred this file :I used ftp put for transferring and found that my transferred zip file was corrupted and couldn't be opened on the ftp server.I found the solution for this on the internet. I needed to use 'binary' to make it right.

I transferred again using binary and then ftp put the zip file onto the other end. Yes, it worked. My zip file wasn't corrupted anymore and I could already opened it on the ftp server. But the problem remains on the .txt files inside it. Converting the file into binary made my .txt files to be distorted and unreadable. I read from the internet that .txt files need to use Ascii instead of Binary to be readable, but if I use ascii it would cause my zip file to be corrupted again. I need to successfully transfer a zip file that contains .txt files using ftp put.

General :: Permissions - Would Map The Owner Id Of Files Coming From Other Computers To The Account Name In /etc/passwd?

Feb 8, 2010

When I use ls -al to show files downloaded from internet,

-rw-rw-r-- 1 427 6011 7544 Jul 20 2006 INSTALL
-rw-rw-r-- 1 427 6011 4229 Dec 9 15:36 Makefile.am
-rw-rw-r-- 1 427 6011 27893 Dec 10 17:47 Makefile.in

I can see the owner and group ids are shown because there are no corresponding entries in /etc/passwd and /etc/group respectively. I don't know much about linux and dare not to edit these files, I wonder if somebody already knows whether linux would map the owner id of files coming from other computers to the account name in /etc/passwd and display them when necessary (for example, when using ls -al)?

General :: Transfer Files From Remote To Local Machine Using SSH?

Jun 28, 2011

I have a Ubuntu server hosted on Amazon EC2. I need to create an automated backup scheme so I created another Ubuntu instance on my local network which is hosted in a virtual environment. I managed to transfer the necessary files between 2 machines on the same network using the rsync command:

rsync -azvv -e ssh /home/path/folder1/ remoteuser@remotehost.remotedomain:/home/path/folder2

How can I do the same thing but transferring files from my Amazon server to my local server? Is there a way I can achieve this with port forwarding, or by VPN, or anything else? It doesn't have to be rsync. If you know about a better method, kindly let me know.

General :: Why Doesn't Rsync Use Delta-transfer For Local Files?

Jan 17, 2011

I have a big iso image which is currently being downloaded by a torrent client with space-reservation turned on: that means, file size is not changing while some chunks in in (4 Mib) are constantly changing because of a download.

At 90% download I do the initial rsync to save time later:

$ rsync -Ph DVD.iso /media/another-hdd/
sending incremental file list
DVD.iso

[Code]....

Then, when the file's fully downloaded, I rsync again:

total size is 2.60G speedup is 1.00

Speedup=1 says delta-transfer was not used, although 90% of the file has not changed, target dir is on another FS and copying takes several minutes. Why doen't it try to speedup the transfer?! How can I force rsync to use delta-transfer?
