Share them with ssh: Local - Connect to server - SSH and fill in machine name, user and directory. After that you'll have the other machine directory (and whole subtree) mounted on your machine.

The simplest way would be setup Samba on the computers and share directories between the two.

If you want a simple, but non-FLOSS, $0 solution, you could try running Dropbox on both and sharing that way. You can change the folder which is sunk after installation.

This will upload your data to the Dropbox servers, however.

Since OP has a LAN, it is a LOT faster to use it instead of using internet connection 2 times to copy/share files. –  laurent Apr 29 '11 at 0:14
