    First, SmartFTP is ftp-client, not server-software.

    Second, running actual FTP-server you got many options, thou most aren't totally free by default. I will list few what you might want to test (and quite many uses up so far on "scene")

    WarFTPdaemon. Totally free for private usage, excellent one, IF you know allready a bit bout FTP-servers. Can be difficult for "newbie", but try it anyway. http://www.jgaa.com/index.php?menu=154

    Next two are maybe most popular. Ease of usage & setup, for sure,
    Bulletproof and Serv-U, but are not freeware. Thou, if you're on to "scene" you don't find that problematic, cough, cough...:) Use Google, you can find those basicly everywhere.

    Programs mentioned above for windoze. There are fukloads of other such programs too, easy to find from download sites.

    To be honest fgreco you last message is bit contradict to your first. So, now you're saying instead having FTP, your real problem is how to transfer files between your two pc's? That would be basic LAN (Local Area Network) then, of course depending much about what operating you're currently using for your pc's atm.
    Anyway, check out this site:

    Also, ICS (=Internet Connection Sharing) is explained there.

    I suggest serve-U4.0,which is widely used as I know and is quite simple.

    Ok, I see what you are getting at here. I believe he means that he is looking for a free web service for file storage that may offer FTP as a method of uploading/downloading files. If this is the case, you are looking for web based file storage. Here are some links to such services (Yes, many of these include FREE service): http://useful.webwizards.net/wbfs.htm

    i can give you to options.
    first of all by ftp
    second by networking.

    oke first of all get bulletproof server and bulletproofclient.

    put the server on the machine you have the files on you want to transfer and the client on the other maschine.
    if you have any probs setting these up use the helpfiles.

    you can also put the server software on the other maschine to cause you can connect to the server also with iexplorer.

    but my option would be to get the program
    Filesharing for net.
    if you just want do to it one way only.
    it is extreem easy to set up and as with bulletproof no scripting is needed.
    its a web based ftpserver

    but either way you.ll have to make sure that both comp have their own id,s like ccxxxxx-a
    for main comp and ccxxxxx-b for the other.

    but the best thing to do the very best thing is to get 2 network-cards put them in the comp put a cable between them install -nat software and you,re up and running.
    especially out of security-reasons it is the best and safest option.

    the way to do this is decriped in the link from
    easycola. there is explained how to setup a comp network.
