Hi dudes and dudettes.

Here is the situation:

Two Pocket PC PDA's linked together through WIFI. Either ad-hoc or just on the same hotspot. They can ping each other fine etc.

Question: Whats the best way of sharing files?

I know that it is possible to connect/access Windows share using your PDA, which is being shared from a Windows PC. The problem is, I cant find any way of sharing a folder on the PDA.

I am sending out a distress call on all sub-space frequencies for suggestions on how to share a folder or any type of FTP server etc. Anything.

There's no services on the Windows Mobile platform to share files/folders. It's only a client. To do what you want the best option is to run a FTP server and use a FTP client running on the second Pocket PC.

Frown Oh no thats not what I wanted to hear.

Well thats OK. ...I don't spose you can recommend me any software? Doesn't it seem like an overlooked thing to you? I mean...two pocket PC's...Wifi....sending files seems like a logical step since it can connect to windows shares.
