Map a drive to that other host. Copy to a file on that mapped drive.

There are many ways to do it in Linux, ssh, telnet, ftp, etc.

Please google the Java API for all those things.

You may want to take a look at Commons-Net.

Well , I tried that from winXP to winXP on another machine and it worked great :


BUT, in order to copy to a linux machine, I tried to put this as the new File :


and it doesn't work. How should I format the new File path in order to copy to a linux FS ?


Thanks !

Linux isn't the same as Windows. You can't do it that way. If you prefer to do it that way. You need to create an NFS share and then mount it.

I'm afraid I can't do that because I have to copy this file into an existing directory dedicated for that.
Is there any other way I can copy this simple file to a linux machine ?
