how to copy files between a windows host and vmware linux guest OS

by using the free sfk instant ftp server.
- download the free Swiss File Knife Base from Sourceforge.
- open the Windows CMD command line, Mac OS X Terminal or Linux shell.
- OS X : type mv sfk-mac-i686.exe sfk and chmod +x sfk then ./sfk
- Linux: type mv sfk-linux.exe sfk    and chmod +x sfk then ./sfk
  OS X and Linux syntax may differ, check the help within the tool.
1) on windows, download

or get it from sourceforge.

2) on linux, make sure that internet access is available, then say

chmod +x sfk

Damned Small Linux:
cp sfk-lib5 sfk
chmod +x sfk

to download and prepare sfk for linux.

3) finding out the IP of the vm linux system

in Ubuntu, click at right top onto the network symbol:

a popup opens, select therein the 2nd tab. the IP should appear.

If the network symbol is not available in your Ubuntu,
try applications / system tools / network diagnosis,
and search therein for the eth0 interface.

in DSL (Damned Small Linux), the IP is usually listed 
in the upper right corner of the desktop, preceeded by "Host:".

this article assumes that your vmware player running DSL
is set to "Bridged" ethernet mode.

4) exchanging files between linux and windows


3.1. run the sfk instant ftp server on windows side, by

  sfk ftpserv -rw

3.2. on linux, to download file from windows, say

  ./sfk ftp get

3.3. on linux, to send a file, say

  ./sfk ftp put

Damned Small Linux, Knoppix:

4.1. run the sfk instant ftp server on linux side, by

  ./sfk ftpserv -rw -port=30199

4.2. from windows, use the above ftp get/put commands
  against the IP adress which DSL told, for example:

  sfk ftp put

sfk is a free open-source tool, running instantly without installation efforts. no DLL's,
no registry changes - just get sfk.exe from the zip package and use it (binaries for
windows, linux and mac are included).
