There have been a number of questions related to remote access PC from Mac, but I have not found an answer to my question.
I have a desktop at home and a Macbook laptop I'm traveling with. On my Mac OS terminal, given the my remote PC (a Window machine)'s IP/username/password (or any information), how can I access files on my remote PC from my Mac terminal?
The PC desktop will just be sitting unused - though connected to the internet, will not be clicked or operated. I do not want to install any fancy remote desktop GUI application. I do not need to see my desktop, as all I ever need to do is as simple as reading, writing or copying text files. Note: There is no ssh client installed on the desktop either, but I have ssh on OSX by default.
Neither of the two machines are server - they are both personal computers. Is it still possible? If not possible, what are the reasons?
