PDF Print E-mail

Transferring files between two computers is easy when they are running the same operating systems, but in a heterogeneous network environment, one has to configure numerous sharing options to ensure seamless file sharing between systems running different operation systems.  Transfer on LAN is a cross-platform utility that allows users to transfer files without having to configure any type of file sharing options, and therefore suitable for heterogeneous network environment. The application lets you specify custom computer identification name for sharing files with others. Additionally, it comes with an option to hide system name from its list, so that other connected clients can’t identify your system.

In order to enable seamless sharing between PC’s, you need to install Transfer On LAN on all the machines that require sharing files. After installation, head over to Preferences tab to specify User name, Destination, Avatar image and Sound. You can change the Language, Appearance, Username, and Destination Folder. If you want to hide system name from others, uncheck Appear in the List of users option. When settings are in place, click Apply and move to Users tab.
