You are the man! being able to share files in your local network without using Internet has just made my life (& probably my family) so much easier & pain free! they even have an android app too! also can transfer by wifi hotspot. To link windows to linux you may have to allow it through the linux firewall which is as simple as switching from deny to allow while you do it. honestly this app just works right away! Thanks for the great article!
