http://askubuntu.com – I understand that this is a totally novice question but... What is the best way for me to transfer files between two PC's? I have a laptop with Ubuntu Desktop (12.04) and a local server I'm setting up using Ubuntu Server. I'm used to windows environment where I might typically browse the network via Windows explorer and move files around. This might work for Ubuntu desktop, but what's the best way for Ubuntu server? Do I need to create a user on the server, then SSH into the server from the laptop? Can I then use a move command to move my files back and forth? What do I need to look into? T (HowTos)
