Is there a way to transfer files between remotely connected computers with the Google Chrome Remote Desktop plugin?
If not, is there a simple way I can transfer files between connected computers?
This can't be done. As a work around, you could always email it to yourself though, or use Google Drive / drop box or similar.
This is kind of a joke answer but since copy and paste is supported between the target and the host, the 'cool' way to copy a file without resorting to intermediate cloud storage would be to:
First, on the source machine fire up a Python console and type:
Next, open the file
GUI based solution (Windows)
If you don't have Python or if both your machines are running Windows and you have Total Commander installed then the steps are simpler:
Command line solution (OSX, Linux)
OSX and most Linux systems typically come with more than one flavour of console base64 encoders. This should work ootb without having to install anything:
Another ootb utility present both in OSX and Ubuntu:
And finally, if your don't care about privacy, you can use any of the online encoders/decoders which google can find, e.g. https://www.google.com/search?q=online+base64+encoder
Have a look at my Open Source webservice www.cross-copy.net. You simply enter the same codeword in two (or more) browsers to upload/download files between them.
