No comments
To transfer files from one computer to another on a network when the computers are under the same operating system is a piece of cake. But doing it on different platforms is a bit challenging. To help you easily solve such obstacle, you can use Transfer-On-Lan. It is a file transfer tool that can run on any OS as long as java is installed. To use it, you need to install Transfer On LAN on all the machines that require sharing files. When running the app for the first time, head over to Preferences tab to specify User name, Destination, Avatar image and Sound. From the Users tab, you'll see all the computers that you have installed Transfer-On-Lan. Right click one of them and click Send to start transferring files. The other computer will get prompt to accept the transfer. Click Yes to begin transferring folders/files.
