FTP Between Two Computers Via Crossover Cable

Specs: Windows Vista

I'm trying to ftp to my computer via crossover with no internet connection. I hooked the cable to both computers and started the ftp client and nothing happened. I dont really know what to put for the information for either computer to start the process.

To ftp you would need an ftp server running on one end to connect to.

Once you have the crossover cable connected here's the network settings you'll need to make the two communicate:

PC 1:
IP: 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

PC 2:
IP: 192.168.0.2
SM: 255.255.255.0

You can check connectivity by pinging PC 1 from PC 2 and vice versa.

why are you even bothering with ftp?

you just share the drives on each machine and with networking enabled you transfer the files.

Your question about flashfxp would be contained in its documentation.

All I need to know is what do you put for the information in the FTP ip address and for the user name and password on the main computer

ftp is ftp is ftp......


When you have everything setup and you're ready to connect you ftp to the IP of the target PC. As per my example above, lets say you have ftp server software running on PC 1 and you wish to connect from PC 2. You know the IP of PC 1 is 192.168.0.1 your command would be:

ftp 192.168.0.1

In my experience, you enter the username/password after making the initial connection.

To use FTP you need and fTP client on one machine and an FTP server on the other, Yo configure the FTP server with a user name and password of you own choosing. You then run it so it is waiting for a connection from the client.

When you run the client you enter the user-name and password you configured in the server. You can configure the FTP server as an open server without user name and password, in which case you just press enter when promoted for user name and password.

Ok so pc1 would have the client and pc2 would be the server ok I thought you had to put in the user name and password from the login information when you first start the computer. So now I have to get a ftp server for pc2 then?
