Need a fast way to transfer large amounts of data across internet

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I am often in need of things from my home PC when I am at work. Sometimes even things that are several gigs like ISO files. Is there a way I can set up so I can transfer large things relatively quickly from home to my work PC? Can it be done some way through VPN or FTP maybe? something like that? I have lots of bandwith up and down both places so that wont be an issue.

This may seem a bit pedantic, but does it have to be across the Internet? Can you use Optical Discs or thumb drives?

FTP would be the best bet

edit for elaboration: I used CuteFTP and it seems to work quite well, but like anything its limited by bandwidth

Connecting to your pc by ftp seems like the best way but the speed of that will depend on your internet connection at both ends.

Not really. Its usually things I can't download from somewhere like my own graphic designs or video productions and I end up needing them at work and can't get them.

What kind of setup is involved for something like that?

You can't download them from somewhere why? Is it the sme reason keeping them backed up on a small thumb drive/phone isn't an option?

That aside, get a webhost or host ftp from your pc like everyone said.

I work in a computational biology lab (Folding to you guys) and I am constantly transferring gigabytes of data between my home computer, work computer, and two off site super computer clusters on my college campus. I use a linux shell and secure login (SSH command) to transfer files.

an example of the commands would be

ssh username@computer.university.net (can use computer name or IP depending on setup)
scp file_to_be_transferred username@computer_I_want_to_transfer_to:~/directory_I_want_to_transfer_to
