Well, not really.  One area of the whole thing does suck tho.

I have a lot of stuff sitting in my old WAMP directory on the host machine.
How do you smart guys get your stuff over to your guest system?

Right now I use two different methods.  If it's smallish, I zip it up and
email it to one of my accounts.  Log in from the guest and download it.
If it's larger than smallish, then I put it in a tarball and ftp to one of
the servers in the sky, then download and unpack.

Either way is a pain in my lazy butt.

What's your suggestion?

aside from how your doing it the
only easier way would be if skype
were to install on both computers...

I have also used a torrent tracker
(there are plenty of public/free ones)
to xfr files... create a torrent and you
dont have to tarball it.. then send
the torrent to the recipient, they open
the torrent with a torrent p2p app..
sender remains online till file is complete
to recipient..

This is also a way i found to 'poor mans
inverse multiplex..' as the torrent automatically
adds the bandwidth up 3 seeders, for example
giving 100% of their bandwidth sharing their
1/3rd of the file...this is also good because
it allows auto restart and can do unlimited file sizes...

If you can SSH into one or the other, then login in on the box and FTP it directly between the two servers... that's your fastest bet.

Now that's a pregnant idea.  I'll have to see what I can make of that.  Thnx.

If it's stuff where you're just updating files, another method is ssh + rsync.  Rsync only does the diffs, and you can also use on-the-fly compression.

In my enterprise day job back with various $gov_agencies, we used rsync to keep our production sites and disaster recovery sites in sync, running rsync out of hourly cron jobs.  If you can set up your dev/test environment to mimic your prod environment closely, a shell script could handle pushes quite easily.

I use rsync a lot even on my local network because it's fewer steps to get stuff copied.

Coolio, RT.

For posterity (assumes that giggle actually does intend to keep all of our cyber ink forever):

I remembered that I have Samba server available on my ubuntu install, so I used it.  It worked, but is teeth grindingly slow.

I did finger out a realistic solution.  Bought an inexpensive usb flash drive.  Formatted it to fat32, copied files from windoze, saved, opened virtuals, mounted drive.  Hey presto.  Done deal.

Thanks all.

Glad you got it sorted D ... and you're right, Samba would be slow in that instance because the amount of handshaking and verification would just be horrible. Damn! Almost like you know what you're doing!

Dink,

Look at scp or pscp.exe under Windows.

Cheers,
