File Sharing at a Lan

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to have a lan with my friends soon and I was just wondering if there is any way that we can easily share pictures and music without having to use an external hdd? Maybe a program or some way to do it through Windows. ( I don't think Homegroup will work, not everyone has 7.)

Thanks

DC++ Works fairly well in medium to large LANs

I remember I've used DC++ at a big lan a few years back. The lan we're planning is probably going to have around 20 people.

I looked into DC++ but I honestly don't know how to set it up.

All you need to do is set up a shared folder. My father and I do this for printing as well as family pictures. He has XP but I can access the files with ease.

I had a lan party and sharing folders worked with all the 7/vista pcs, but 7 and xp refused to see each other. I wouldn't go that route, personally I use an external HDD, but passing around that too 20 people would take to long. You can always use utorrent, that works over lan pretty good.

Enable network folder sharing in Windows 7's network settings, right click a folder and click share. You probably want to password it with something, just in case.

If you guys are going to be connected to the net then use dropbox and public folder sharing.

Dropbox is a horrible solution because you would rely on WAN upload.

Just use a shared folder, make sure that anything vital is 'read only'. You can create a separate share in a blank folder named something like 'Dropbox' for other users to have 'modification' priviliges.
