Ubuntu: Sending files from Win8 PC to Ubuntu14.04 Laptop


I want to transfer some files from a PC with Windows 8 to my laptop with Ubuntu14.04 via WiFi Lan.But I don't know what to do. I already can connect to internet via the WiFi network of my modem-router but I don't know how to connect to the PC.Can anyone help? I searched internet and this site for a similar question but found nothing. Thanks


An easy cross-platform open source GUI tool for sharing files over your local LAN is NitroShare

Simply install the program on the two computers in question and a representation of each machine will show up on the other's desktop. You can then drag and drop files onto the representation to send them to that machine. You'll have to accept the files on the recipient machine but it's possible to configure auto-accepting of files from machines you designate as trusted.

Another option would be to install Dropbox or BTSync on both machines. These programs are cross-platform and allow you to share folders over your LAN or over the internet.


Use the scp protocol. For windows there are a program named PSCP. http://www.nber.org/pscp.html Here's a example to use it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJbBpOptMjA


I would use ftp. The client should be free for Windows (Filezilla) and the server is free for Ubuntu. Here is a guide on how to install an ftp server on Ubuntu. https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/ftp-server.html Hope that helps


Mount your C: on your Ubuntu Server. That way, you don't have to revert any changes (ie uninstalling ftp server)

smbclient <AdminPasswd> //<Win8MachineIP>/C$ -U <AdminUser>
