Drag the 17gig file to Shared folders, then the other computer should be abble to see it.
And you can easily copy the file that way.
I'm assuming you can ping each computer from the other, that your network is setup as per microsoft instructions, and that file sharing is enabled, and NetBios is running, both computers are members of the same workgroup, gues accounts are enabled, or if XP-pro, user rights are correct, etc.
If you could tell what Windows systems you're using, how they're connected, how is your network setup, someone will be able to help. Without some details, it's not possible to guess. Tell you the truth, I don't even know what you mean by peer to peer network here. We need some context.
