Hi all,
Got hold of a cheap laptop. I want to use it as my download rig. It
will be on most of the time downloading torrents.
The laptop actually came with Windows XP installed. I setup the laptop
ip as and my desktop (running Windows 7) ip as After doing that I connected both of them using a lan
wire. I then enable sharing on both of them and I could transfer files
directly from one computer to the other at speeds of upto 75MBps. I
want to know how to do the same with archlinux or Windows 7 running on
my desktop and archlinux running on the desktop. Please tell me how to
do that. I want to be able to tranfer downloaded content directly from
the laptop to the desktop using a lan cable.
