Default sending files...

Any idea for send files at decent speed from computer to computer without using 3rd party servers?

The reason is send some big files (on a esay way) from a windows computero to a mac computer.

Thanks.

Can't MacOS handle Windows shares? I thought it could.

Or run something like this on Windows and any FTP client on MacOS: http://www.pablosoftwaresolutions.co...tp_server.html

  1. Use windows or OS X to share part of the FS.
  2. Drag & drop the files over.

Thanks Thomas.
iirc, ftp is more efficient/faster. also it can resume (not sure if samba can). there is an excellent, free and simple ftp server for windows called freeFTPd : http://www.freesshd.com/
its small and easily configured. I'd suggest using some port other than standard ones for some extra security.

btw, do windows shares even work on internet without vlan?

You have FTP-server, HTTP-server, WINS and SMB in OS X, and It Just Works.

On the Mac, go System Settings -> Network -> WINS and set your work group, then go Sharing -> File Sharing and enable, and they will be able to see eachother.

WINS/SMB is by far the easiest and most elegant solution, and they are built into both OSX and Windows. I've been using SMB/SAMBA with windows, osx, amiga os and linux off a central win 2003 file server for many years with excellent results. The server part is entirely optional, just setup windows shares on the win box (es) and enable it on the mac side as Leffmann said.

Sorry for my explanation but the interchange oof files isnt on local network, maybe ftp is the "easy" and fast solution.

If it's not all on the same network, FTP is likely your best bet, yeah.

Dropbox and other similar services may work as well if you have web access on all the machines, but if you are going to be doing it often FTP still is most likely the easiest.
