Hope this isn't a re-re-re-repost!
My carpc will have a usb wireless adapter. The pc is running XP. I'd like to be able to move files from my Mac (where my music and videos are stored) to the carpc while it's in the driveway. I'm running a wireless router in the house that sends a signal outside.
On my xbox I was able to ftp into the xbox and just move files that way. It was very simple. Is it possible to do the same to the carpc? If not, does anyone know an easy way to move files from my Mac to XP? I don't want to remove the hard drive because I will want to constantly update music and videos, etc.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
thanks - i'm not really familiar with ftp stuff but i think i'll take a look at filezilla. i'm sure i can figure it out
heya, try WS FTP SERVER, i used this prog in the days of 56k to tranfer school work to and from home, worked well. Relatively easy to setup. If your moving gigs then yeah like TheLandYacht said....a removable hdd would be the best. Dont forget to disable anonymous login!
Why choose FTP?
The much easier way to sync files would be to use something like ViceVersa Pro.
just checked out the website. viceversa looks good the only problem is the main files are on a mac and it appears this program supports windows only
ftp? isnt that overkill?
Set up windows shares. Have finder connect to the shares with go->connect to server (smb://ipnumber) (example smb://192.168.1.75) and use username guest with no password.

that's more along the lines of what i was looking for. purdoom - this may sound stupid but how do i discover the ip address of the car pc to set this up?
