VNC File Transfer

I am using UltraVNC on the PC side to connect to my macs running OSXVNC 1.71. Is there a way that I can do a file transfer via the 2 machines?


Well there are lots of ways to do file transfers however file transfer is not an official part of the RFB specification for VNC. So, at this time OSXvnc does not support file transfers although it is something we are considering.

In the meantime please feel free to use SCP, SFTP, AFP, FTP, HTTP, or SMB to do file transfer between the two machines.

My personal favorites are the first two which tunnel through SSH to allow for encrypted file transfers. All Mac’s come with OpenSSH installed. It can be enabled by going to System Preferences->Sharing and turning on “Remote Login”
