Tips and Tricks


The File Sharing Protocol (FTP) is used to transfer files from one host to another host over a network.

For a discussion of how FTP works, see this page.

Thunar can connect to shared folders (AKA Samba Shares) on Windows, Mac, Linux computers and NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices if Samba is installed.

For other actions with Samba, see this document.
