Hi,
you need to transfer a data right very simple?

3 options

1.Buy one USB stick(pen drive) whenever u need,u copy it and take it whereever u required.

since u have wifi and bluetooth options in your laptap u can choose below one also

2.you can go for wireless adaptor in indian money i hope it costs nearly 450 Rs /-

3.Or u can go for Bluetooth tongle (but quality of service would be good in wifi only 2nd option)

if u ask best way to me i would recommend you go with a pen drive for temporary trasfer it is best

hi,
one more doubt, some of my friends say that we can transfer data using usb port from one pc to another. is it possible. is any software required for that.

as stated by sashi to use cross over cables, will i be in need of hubs or routers for data transfer.

if my question is silly i am sorry but i am in need of solution as i have no idea about hardwares

"both running windows XP", no problem. I like the cross-over cable solution the best. It is cheapest AND easiest to set up. It's also secure by nature, wireless takes some time to lock down.

Hey, I need to make two programs I wrote to communicate with each other, but what's the best way to implement it? Both programs will be running on the same machine. I don't want to open sockets and transfer the data 'network style' because of security issues. The data transfer is only one way, program A will be sending streams of data to program B, and program B will output the data.
