    You posted in the "Digital Design and Embedded Programming" section so is this a custom device you are talking about or do you want a data transfer over the internet from one computer to another?

    Hello, Brain.
    Sorry if I wrote the wrong way! I saw in this section about the network. Yes, you understood correctly, I need a data transfer from one computer to another.

    Probably the easiest method then is to use FTP (File Transfer Protocol). Just run a suitable FTP client at both ends and enable file sharing if needed. Most FTP programs will show two two file windows, one for each end of the link and you can just drag and drop files between them to transfer between computers. I suggest "Filezilla" which is free and works on several platforms, I use it to transfer files to and from web servers all the time.
