I just need the simplest (no need to be safe) file solution to share files from my PC (Manjaro XFCE) to my Smart Box, without password, can anyone help me?
Also have a look at
Hope it helps!
What is a Smart Box?
Without any knowledge of the target is is impossible to suggest anything.
Syncthing is very simple and safe solution.
Your “Smart Box” is running Android, right?
The most easiest setup for sharing files without a password and insecure connection is bare metal FTP.
Just run a FTP-Server on the Box: GitHub - wolpi/prim-ftpd: FTP server app for android and connect in thunar like:
ftp://ip-adress. No password is needed.
As long as the receiving device has got a web browser you can use a very crude and ad hoc method:
open a terminal and type:
python -m http.server
this will serve all the files below that directory tree - not above it
open the browser and type the ip or name of your PC and the port the server runs on like so:
and you can use the browser to fetch the files …
Simply end the process in the terminal when done (CTRL-c) or just close the terminal
to kill the ad hoc server.
This is just one-way - from PC to the other device.
