This sounds like a one-time thing so I would suggest Droopy:
** Install Droopy:
** Find your ip address:
** Open a terminal and run droopy:
EDIT: If you want to change the default "upload to" folder you can specify that with the "-d" switch like this:
** Open up your Internet Browser and enter:
Change 192.168.0.104 to the ip address you found with nm-tool
Once done you will be able to specify which file you want to "upload" to the Mint box:
