how to best transfer files between Mac and PC on a wireless LAN? - Mac Networking

Hi all - I have a Mac laptop running OS9.2 (not OSX) and a PC laptop running Windows 2000. Both are on a wireless LAN in my house (connected to a Linksys wireless router). What's the easiest way to transfer files between the machines? I can imagine running an FTP server on one, and a client on the other; is there a more elegant solution? If both were Macs, I could use the "File Sharing" feature. Can a PC participate in any of this? If anyone has any info, please cc: to [email]mlevin77comcast.net[/email]. Thanks! Mike...

    That depends. Do you consider a web server "more elegant" than an FTP
    server? :-) I've used Web Sharing from MacOS 9 on occasion to get a file
    from my Mac to a nearby Windows PC.

    To do file sharing for free, use FTP or as the prior poster mentions,
    use Web Sharing. You may place a folder or an alias of a folder in
    the shared web folder. In the web browser when you navigate to this
    folder, you will see a file list.

    To get a more elegant solution, you will have to pay for it. See
    Dave for the Mac or PC Lan for the PC. You could also upgrade to
    10.2.
