What is the quickest way to transfer files to desktop without using USB or a flash c.

Hi all

I need to be able to merge the comments into my PDF file and to transfer the resulted file to desktop without having to interrupt my reading (that is closing the current document because if that is required then I will use the USB method)

I would prefer wireless if possible .
Any recommendations ?

Try to ask author of OFTM file manager. There is BigBrother functionality, which works over WiFi. I never fully understood what it is, but it seemed to me that it is for file transfer.

I think he is Kirith from current "Russian thread" on this Onyx Boox forum.

Install FTP server on m92 and use any ftp client on your pc to access.
(Can somebody post the link the FTP server - can't find it right now...)

Well, worry not. What you've found is just a wrapper script. Server itself is already there on your device - it is an Onyx-developed app. Using OTFM, just go to directory /opt/onyx/arm/bin/ and run the file ds_server

Edit: Wait a minute... I saved the copy of install files. Attached is ftp script from Russian forum - to install it, unpack the archive on your Boox and run install.oar. Then go to Applications menu.

Hope the author of the script won't mind.
Attached Files
File Type: zip ftp.zip (5.9 KB, 164 views)

Understandable, it took me a while to get to it as well. Ok, if I get some time myself one of these days, I shall give it a whirl.

Cheers!

Three cheers and pints all around for this! It took me all of five minutes to get this going (the last four minutes because I forgot I had my router isolating the M92 from the LAN).

Recommended.

Cheers!

I was planning to search the answer myself but since you succeeded can you please tell me what is OTFM? Do I have to install that one too ? This is what made me postpone this.

You dont need OTFM to do this. Just download ftp.zip, unpack on boox and run install.oar

OTFM is a file manager for Boox, you will find it lying somewhere around.

Doesn't it just refer to the file handler on the device? Either way, I simply installed the FTP server as per above, the device restarted, and there it was in Applications, and straight forward to use.

Cheers!

Hi "janek",
First, thank you for posting ftp.zip file. I found it very useful. I have some problems with USB transfer so I think that FTP is very convenient. But, I can't access to my SD card using this method (FTP). I tried with "mount" script:

#!/bin/sh

mkdir /media/flash/sd_card
mount --bind /media/sd /media/flash/sd_card

and now I can read from SD but I can't write to it. I also tried to change permission but no luck. Since I think this really nice and useful method for transferring files, do you have any more informations which can help? Maybe problem is in ftp server on M92?
Thanks
