I'm trying to transfer some files over Ethernet and figured that conncting my headless server directly to my computer with an Ethernet cable would be the fastest method. However, things don't go quite well.
I can only acces this to server over SSH, thus requiring a connection which I first need to create myself, apparently. I have found that I need to make a connection with the option “shared to other computers.” This will then act as a router and assign IP adresses. I did this but now I dont know what IPs are used or how to find them.
The server is has FTP set up. It’s this which I want to use to transfer my files. I need an IP adress for this but don't know how to set it up over a direct connection.
Both computers run Debian and I can only acces one of them. Is there a simple solution or perhaps a better way to do this?
