file-sharingsoftware-recommendation

How to transfer a file from one system to another system easily?In my company employees will always ask us to transfer files from one system A to system B and so on. What we do is first we access system A through samba and copy the required files and then we access the system B through samba and paste the files there.Is there any easy and quick way of transferring of files from one system to another system?Any GUI will be preferable, thanks in advance 🙂

Best Answer

You can use ssh to transfer files. So you can transfer a file like this:

scp /home/user/examplefile otheruser@192.168.1.101:/home/otheruser/

This will transfer examplefile to /home/otheruser

If you dont like to use commands, you can just use nautilus, which supports the ssh-protocol. The remote location appears just like a normal directory and you can copy files there.

To access the remote location, open Nautilus and look under File > Connect to Server... then choose the location you want.
