Maybe this doesn’t even exist. I want to be able to easily transfer files from computer to computer over a network (very large files). I also need it to be on a networking for dummies level. Hopefully, It would be something where I don’t have to keep going from computer to computer to set stuff up. I have not gotten anything software level to work, so I have gone to hardware solutions. I tried a netgear network storage enclosure and it was misrable (couldn’t get it to recognise the drive, and if you read the reviews, its a pos and has that problem). I’m currently running a belkin network usb hub (that allows hard drives), but it is 1-2MBps max so it wont work.
Here is what I am trying to do. My htpc in the front room has about 1.8 TB of storage and I’m trying to move video to it. Tv reception is much better in the back room so its easier to capture. For that matter, any dealing with files is easier in the backroom as standing in front of the entertainment center gets tedious. I just want to create new video (ripping and converting dvd to mp4 or whatever), then transfer it all to the htpc. I may want to do personla video’s and photos too. At the moment, I have a few hundred gig of random files I need to transfer and there is more every day. I already got streaming video down (so I can watch anything on the htpc in the bedroom over the network), I just cannot move or modify files.
As I’m an idiot when it comes to networking (spent most of my life using multiple computers on kvm switches), I have tried out everything I could find but hope that I’m missing something easy to transfer files.
So am I hosed?
