I often transfer files between my Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 machines, in both directions, on my home network. Usually I just use the window file manager (Nautilus or Windows Explorer) on whichever machine I'm sitting at to initiate the copy/move in whichever direction. Sometimes I use WinSCP on the Windows machine because Samba and/or Windows doesn't seem to cope with many large simultaneous transfers.
So my question is, is there an app that I could use to initiate a copy/move from either machine, and allow me to view progress/notify me of completion on the other machine?
For example, I start the transfer on the Windows machine, go and work on my Ubuntu machine. From my Ubuntu machine I track progress and get notified of completion (of one or all transfers).
