    I really don't know much about transmit at all. My brief understanding of it is that I can send a file to a friend much faster. Lets say that I have a 15MB file and I wanted to send it to you. What would I have to do? I see server, username, password fields in transmit but I don't know what to do...

    ..... This is going to take some explaining, although I don't have the time right now. I'm sure someone will be able to take this one for you. If I come back and it's not, I'll explain. :o

    :ugh: Trying to be a cool guy...


    I clearly stated that I was a noob with this software, it looks like it does many of things. I was asking how to transfer files from one person to another. Yes, of course I could search "How to use transmit Mac" but don't you think that is going to yield thousands of results about everything the software can do.



    I could have came into your thread "Parallels for MBP?" and been a dick and told you to search, but I didn't. It's the same fucking thing.

    Transmit is an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) application that allows you to transfer files to a web server. Your friend could then download the file from the server. It usually cost money to have a web-server, so it likely isn't worth it for you.

    A service like DropBox (http://getdropbox.com) or http://drop.io would probably suit you best.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    kmad, since i was a jerk earlier i'm gonna throw this out there for you (not sure if it will solve your problem but it could).

    register for this (free 50gb of online storage):
    adrive.com/

    and then download cyberduck (free as well), you can use cyberduck to upload to that online server and then give your login info to whomever you want to share info with. i have not used this setup yet, however some people on another forum i am on have been discussing setting it up. let me know if that helps at all.


    oh and why can't i post links? do i have to have a certain post count or what?
