    Linux host - Windows 10 Pro guest in VMware --- how sftp between them


    good evening everyone!

    i am running Linux Mint 18 with VMware and a virtual machine of Windows 10 Pro.

    Both systems are 64 bits.

    I want to share files between Linux host and Windows 10 virtual machine

    Despite enabling file sharing in the properties of the windows 10 virtual machine, the file sharing feature doesnt work.

    So i want to set up a simple ftp-type of transfer between host linux and windows 10 virtual machine.

    Can anyone please link me a precise, full tutorial (preferably somewhat recent tutorial - i.e. 2-3 years old tops), on how to do it, step by step, so i can send files from linux host to virtual windows 10 ?

    Or tell me exactly


    Many thanks

    on virtualbox, there's something called the guest additions, which need to be installed inside the vm.
    i guess there's something like that for vmware too.

    sure, you want a drink & a foot massage with that?

    seriously, you would do it the same way you would do it between two physical machines.

    Yup, this attitude will get you lots of help...
    Are you a clueless Kali user? If you can't get Kali running on your own, it ain't the right distro for you.

    well...you kinda started it with your arrogant know-it-all attitudine!

    What? did you mom birthed you with linux knowledghe or something?

    Dont believe me?

    Read back?

    The reason i asked for a full tutorial, is because i found alot of conflicting (and not working) info on how to connect the two.


    So my host Linux is 192.168.1.3

    My windows virtual machine is 192.168.122.122.
    (yep, thats how it was assigned)

    So, why did you assign the IP address like this?
    You did not tell us what type of virtual network interface you have, doing NAT, bridged, host-only? Are they both on the same subnet, netmask? You provided none of this information, nor you did not tell us what tutorial you decided to follow. You did not tell us what you have tried. You make it as hard as possible for us to help you and then you whine. Phooey.

    hi!

    i have the virtual windows on NAT, then i changed it on bridged (as some tutorials recomended).

    they are both on same network ...i mean, they are the same machine - a linux computer hosting a windows 10 virtual machine

    gateway is obivously, 192.168.1.1

    and yes, port 21 is opened on router, just checked

    linux mint 18 - IP 192.168.1.3
    windows - 192.168.122.122

    obviously, i have the username and password for both

    i wanted to use filezilla, which i have on both linux and windows

    so ...how do i set it up?

    many thanks

    windows - 192.168.122.122
    So what is the netmask if this is bridged setup?
    What has router to do with it?

    I see your problem, this has nothing to do with Linux nor Windows. You need to learn network basics.

    please pay attention yourself.

    and show some effort instead of demanding handouts.
