    Take out the drive in the PC you want to tranfer files from and put it in as a slave in the other machine.

    Honest to God.

    I don't know why everybody shys away from doing that.

    It barely will take you ten minutes to switch the drive to another
    computer, and then you can transfer almost a gig a minute from one drive to the other.

    because 1 computer is on the company network and the other computer is on a private network also in the company.

    The public network and the private network simply CANNOT interface. ever. no way.

    But, we need to transfer certain files to the public network. So i have to transfer files from my (private network)computer to my (public network)computer and then move them into the public servar.

    I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Use an external HD. If you cant use usb/firewire, then you should just make the internal harddrive as a slave on the computer you want to transfer the files to. If you can't do those, you're pretty much on your own.:rolleyes:

    I'm pretty sure you can't have two of the computers can't be hooked upto the external HD... unless those two computers are under the same network.

    And... since they're not. Why not just plug in the external HD to the computer with the files you need to transfer, put the files on the external HD, unplug it, plug it into the other computer, and drag out the files.

    Since you said YOU can use a USB, and it is possible. you might have some difficulties in the fact you have to turn on certain network protocols. You may or may not have that access on the networked computer.
    The simplest method is what has been talked about by 2 or 3 people.
    Remove your networked computer HD, slave it on yours, transfer files, put back.
