Take a step back: how are those two machines connected to each other? Can
one machine 'see' the filing system of the other and/or vice versa? If so, you can
simply copy the file from one FS (Filing System) to the other.

If not, does that Linux machine run FTP (File Transfer Protocol)? If so you can
use your FTP client on the other machine to transfer the file.

Does a SMB ("Samba") server run on that Linux machine? If so you can go back
to that step one again and simply copy the file.

Does any service run on that Linux machine that accepts file names and data
and creates a corresponding file and stores the data in there? If so you have to
connect to that service and send it the name and content of your file. This
usually involves sockets.

Is there any wire connected between the two machines? If not, you're out of luck.
Use a USB stick or even floppy disks then.

kind regards,

i guess it runs FTP (Linux)

The machines are connected like this:

im browsing through the web application through IE on a windows workstation

the application is being hosted in a linux platform.

The method im doing is to upload a file from the windows workstation to the linux workstation.

i want to change the picture the front page displays (.../pic1.jpg) .. i then browse and upload a new picture from any terminal (windows for example) and copy it to the directory of the linux.

So your Linux machine has a web service available, i.e. the service probably
listens to port 80 for requests. This is old time technology with its myriads of
solutions. Google for "web upload file servlet" and see the results.

You didn't look close enough: this one is completely free and there are
many more where this came from.

Good Day ,
Right now i used the uploadPackage.j ar that i found . If anyone is familiar on how to use this jar pls help me.
When i upload an image file of any type and upload it or copy it to another pc the image file is broken.. the image is distorted..

this is my configuration.t xt:

name=report3.jp eg

the max variable is the only thing i think that i should tweak.. However when i changed it from 10000 to 100000000 .. the image gor better but still distorted...

is there anything i could do or is this jar file limited on a uploading a certain kind of file.?

If there are any more suggested jars to use.. pls do so...

As to the oreilly servlets.. im still trying to study how to use it... i saw the demo but i am in the process of making it to work.

Hi I'm writing a commercial program which must be reliable. It has to do some basic reading and writing to and from files on the hard disk, and also to a floppy. I have foreseen a potential problem. The program may crash unexpectedly while writing to the file. If so, my program should detect this during startup, and then (during startup) probably delete the data added to the file and redo the writing operation.
