I want to know if there is any way FTP can accommodate my needs:
I want to send a file from my laptop to my sleeping desktop via FTP over public internet. When my desktop is woken up later that day, I want it to download/replace that file.
If you have any suggestions on my idea below please tell me also.
I am going to create a one click 'send download' button on right click in chrome.
Right now I am going to run a batch file 30 seconds after login on the destination computer. It will check and see if a file says 0 or 1. If 1 it will open Chrome and set file back to 0. On the host computer, the right click will use SendTab to send a download link to my destination computer via chrome; it will also send a file that says 1 via FTP to the destination computer.
So when I click the right click menu option on a link, it will copy, new tab, paste, enter, send via SendTab, FTP file that says 1 to destination.
The next time I open the destination computer, it will download the file that says 1, open chrome, set file to 0, then chrome will open the download link tab and download the download I need.
Is there an easier way to tell another computer to download a file, while not on the same local network??
