    Using P2P (Peer to Peer) to distibute files on local lan


    I have not seen this question in here, and have not been able to find an answer. I am seeking a way to use the native Windows peer to peer networking to distribute PowerPoint files that my company has created to local clients while keeping one master and all the clients would be read only and updated daily from the master folder or file. Am I barking up a Teflon tree? or can I actually achieve results with this method.

    Thanks for any advice

    Pretty sure this would not work.

    Hi there
    It's actually possible -- just enable the folder on your computer as SHARED. Now in Network discovery if the clients can see your computer in Windows explorer / File explorer then they should just be able to click on the file and copy it.

    Here's how to use File / Windows explorer as an FTP client :

    Other ways are to use File explorer as an FTP client or use something like WS_FTP -- used to be free it's gone "Pro" (i.e pay) now but there are plenty of places to find the freebie on the net.

    Cheers
