Whenever i need to copy some files and can't find a pen drive, (I don't have Bluetooth enabled in my laptop), I create a new ad hoc (wireless) network in Windows and share the necessary files on the network and share the files with the other system.

Now I want to do the same with Ubuntu, but I can't. I can create a new network, but i am not able to share or send and don't even know how to access the system connected to the network. How can i do this?

Thanks

If you have the network setup, and the computers can at least see each other, making them talk is the next step. In order to do this, you can use Samba. It is designed to make network sharing between a Windows client and Linux desktop possible.
