I need to transfer about 10Gb of files (really small ones) between my two remote computers. I`ve tried creating a torrent and using soulseek with no luck or crazy slow transfers (ports seem to be open). Both computers are on the same ISP with really good connection, so using third-party servers in theory should be ineffective. Are there simple ways to do this, preferably without zipping? Using WindowsXP and Windows7.

have you tried ftp? – mcalex Dec 29 '12 at 17:28
Setting up FTP server? No, i dont know how to do it, and im afraid, it will be slowish with 22.000 files... Ahh, and installing it requires to insert a Windows XP cd, so won't try it for few days... – Justinas Dūdėnas Dec 29 '12 at 17:39

Woohoo, it works perfectly! If you post filezilla server as an answer, I can just plain accept it. However, setup and connection is more than two-clicks, so, not as user-friendly as it could be. – Justinas Dūdėnas Dec 29 '12 at 18:56
@JustinasDūdėnas: You do realize that Filezilla is ftp, right? – martineau Dec 29 '12 at 19:38

You can use the freely available filezilla program to do this. Both client and server programs are free and make setting up FTP almost 2-click easy.        ;-)
