Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
For Linux sharing with Windows use SAMBA . Note that Linux can read / write NTFS so it depends on which way you want to transfer the files.

Simply share the two computers and then use on Windows the Windows explorer or on Linux what ever file manager you have - I have a KDE desktop so Konqueror works fine. Otherwise from Linux just use an RDP equivalent to logon to your Windows box and use cut and paste (for the other way round use VNC to do the same thing).

Have a look also at some FTP type programs - plenty of FREE ones both for Linux and Windows.

Your question needs to be a bit more detailed as there's zillions of methods of doing what I think you want to do.



Cheers et Bon Jour
