FTP network connection

Postby nomko on Mon Feb 04, 2013 1:50 pm

Ok, this is a new attempt to get my 2 computers connected through a network connection. I'm still trying :wink:

Is it possible to set up a regular/normal FTP server/client connection between the 2 computers?

PC 1 will be the client running Mint 14 + Cinnamon
PC 2 will be the server running Lubuntu 12.10 and sharing some folder and the external disc.
When this is possible, which FTP application should i use?

See the image for clarification.
The purple dashed line represents the FTP connection.

Nobody here who has a solution?

Maybe someone knows a good FTP server with a easy-to-use GUI.

Hi

Try installing webmin on your server.

download and install by running:

Code: Select all
cd /tmp
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.610_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/webmin_1.610_all.deb
sudo apt-get install -f


then follow thig guide:

Alternatively I'd always use sftp which only requires ssh to be running on the server, you can connect from nemo/nautilus with file>connect to server>ssh and log in or if using windoze you can download and install winscp which is a filezilla-like client for sftp or scp.

Hope this helps!

Not sure if my experiens can help you, but maybe.
On my XP sytem I used CoreFTP lite for transferrinfg files from my Humax video system to my NAS .
On my new PC with Windows 8 and Linux Mint NAdia Cinnamon I looked for an alternative.
CpreFTP lite was not available for Windws 8 or for Linux. I tried Filezilla but then I needed 2 transfers (first from the humax to my PC and than again from the PC to the NAS.
But solution was finally VERY SIMPLE.
I opened 2 filemanagers on the Desktop. With File-connect to server I specified both (in my case) static IP adresses and made the choice for FTP with login. And than I could simply drag the files. The transfer was as fast as with coreFTP and withouth errors, what was often a oproblem with coreFTP. Monitoring is possible (you could follow the time and the size) what was not possible with CoreFTP when transferring files between 2 servers). So a GREAT advantage of Linux Mint !!!
The only minus against the use of a program as CoreFTP is that each time you use it you have to specify complete login information again, but maybe somebody knows a solution for that (a kind of connection library)...
Cheers
Bob
