Network Downloading...

My sister downloaded a kick-ass movie, and I figured instead of searching for it, and downloading it, I could download it from her...

Does anyone know if it is possible?...The PC's are connected via router, but I can't find any way to do it...anyone know what to do?

Thanks in advance

search for computer (go into any windows explorer window and hit ctrl-f) search for computer ... find it, make sure the hard drive is shared and you should be right.

I'm pretty sure you can have it sent over to your computer. I get my brother to send music over to mine all the time. But i'm not sure how to. He always does it for me.

Simplest way is to have shared hard drives...then just go into your local area network...and connect that way.


i could always tell you how to setup a ftp server and use that but it wouldn't be worth the effort if you two are on a lan.

Burn it onto CD or DVD?

Anyhow I had the same problem as you and it took me ages to get it sorted. Make sure both computers are on the same workgroup and also make sure the firewall isn't blocking access between the 2 computers. Then make sure you shared the folder the movie is in and then you should be good to go.

Thanks so far, and now when I go to view network computers, I see hers, and when I double click on it, this pops up:

Either you or her firewall isn't setup properly. I was stuck with that message for a long time

Bastard people at PCWorld wouldn't give me any advice so I ended up borrowing networking for dummies from the local library

So turn firewalls off?...I turned them off, but the same thing still happens...

I probably should have mentioned that the router is connected to the modem through my parents' computer, so should I have it enabled from there?

make sure she's got all of her permissions set to let you share her crap.

I wouldn't turn the Firewall off, that's too risky these days(you could if you want). Just add you and your sister's local IP address (usually 192.168.1.x) to the list of allowed IP addresses in the Firewall(on all your computers).
