Ubuntu: File sharing between Mac OS and Ubuntu


I am pretty new to Ubuntu so please if you can answer to this question explicitly. I have two laptops one is running on MAC OS X 10.8.5 (OS X Mountain Lion) and the other one running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

I want to connect the two laptops via terminal such that I will able to share files between the two. A file sharing system like Dropbox is my aim but of course private, meaning to have a folder on both laptops where I can upload files on one laptop and it then appears on the other.

How would one do this? is it even possible? Thanks.


One project/piece of software you might want to look into is NitroShare.

This project is actually developed by a couple of guys from this site (NathanOsman & Mateo) and it's nice and simple, is cross-platform, and works between platforms without much hassle at all.

Basically, you install the program, launch it, and it sits in the background until you need it.

Taskbar Menu:

Device Menu:

This isn't quite like Dropbox where it automatically syncs, but it is a very useful tool and you can send whole directories at a time.
