In my home, all PCs connect through a small router. Some wired and some wireless.
Our Media PC (HTPC) is controlled via a Media Center TV style remote, so managing files on it is tedious.
I can access all of the files on the HTPC from my desktop PC, but moving a 6 GB file from
\\HTPC\Folder2 involves copying the data to the desktop and then transferring it back. If I were on the HTPC, this would likely be handled by a simple address change for the file (i.e. it would be done almost instantly).
I'm thinking if I could get an FTP program to connect to the HTPC, I could simplify things
...but how do I enable that ability on the HPTC?
Then, how would I go about connecting to the HTPC? Would I simply enter
\\HTPC as the FTP address?
