    Default How to copy a file to client desktop

    Hi All,

    I was wonder if someone can tell me how i can copy a file to one of my client without remote connection.

    1- What do i need to have from my client? (Ip address, hostname,etc?)

    2. Is the client has to be online ? (computer has to be powered on)?

    3. what is the meaning of below command:
    \\192.168.14.56\C$

    thanks for help.

    You could upload the file to a file sharing website and request your client to down load it after you supply him/her with the appropriate Url.

    Otherwise, transfer it by:

    1/. E-mail attachment.

    2/. On USB stick (memory device), CD, DVD, floppy disk.

    3/. By FTP (file transfer protocol after installing FTP client on your "client's" machine and FTP host on your machine. Connect each via LAN/WAN (whichever is applicable), and yes, IP addresses must be known for each machine to enable FTP configuration.

    Of course both machines must be powered up and operational.

    The OP has a response to this query on cnet.com.

    Tristen is right....File sharing websites are the best way if you are unsure. Encrypt the file with Winrar if you want before uploading, and just email the link/password.
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.
