I have two laptops:
- MacBook Pro
- Dell XPS 15 L-501z
I want to know how can I transfer files via WiFi between them?
Do you have a Wi-Fi router or access point? If so, assign each of them an IP address, configure sharing on the Windows and Mac machines, and then connect using Finder from the Macs.
In OS X there's a specific option in
System Preferences >
Sharing for allowing Windows machines to connect. Enable the
File Sharing option, click the
Options button, and select
Share files and folders using SMB (Windows).
I'm not sure how reliable an ad-hoc wireless network will be, as I've never set one up between OS X and Windows.
If the network is up then you can also use FTP or TFTP or SCP etc. to transfer files without needing to share anything.
The FTP method goes like this:
That's it... So simple and working with everything, even iPhone + Windows. There are lots of free FTP servers on the web just have a search and you'll see.
If you would like an ad-hoc 'no configuration' solution try my open source project cross copy:
