Now I being using AirDroid to transfer files from my laptop to phone. Just open the app on phone, and type the address of the ip in browser on laptop and send you files.

I was wondering, if the same thing was possible between two laptops connected to the same wifi network.

I know folder and file sharing options are there, but is there a browser route too. Would love to hear from you guys, if its possible.

  • Yes, set up a webserver on one of the PC's, and turn on Directory browsing. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jul 24 '14 at 17:23

If FTP is set up you can, if you navigate to ftp://servername from the browser

To set up ftp , refer this serverfault.se question (for windows 7) https://serverfault.com/questions/85027/how-do-i-setup-an-ftp-server-on-windows-7

  • Can you expand your answer, to include the information from that link? The goal is to get as much knowledge on Super User as possible, and if Life Hacker goes down, this answer becomes useless. Thanks! – Canadian Luke Aug 7 '14 at 21:10
  • Thanks for the comment, but the link only adds additional info. The OP didn't ask for "how" to get this done. (Or maybe I'm too lazy :D) – dbza Aug 7 '14 at 21:12
  • The answer would be much more useful with the information just on the page here, instead of having the user click through another link. That's all I'm saying. – Canadian Luke Aug 7 '14 at 21:16


Just go to the above address, that's all what you want.
