Easily get files from Windows to OS4

I do my programming on the Windows side still because it has better text editors. It was then a chore to get the source code to OS4.1FE in WinUAE. I would have 2 WinUAE's running: A4000 OS3.9 and OS4.1FE. Go to OS3.9, copy files to a floppy, eject. Go to OS4.1, insert floppy, copy files off floppy to HD. Compile. Painfully slow process. There has to be a better way.....

It dawned on me: run an FTP server on my Windows machine, log in to on the Amiga with pFTP (Pete's FTP) or AmiFTP and download the files!

I use FileZilla FTP Server. Easy to set up. Here is a YouTube videos:

I did have to go into my router and set up Port Forwarding for port 21.

NOTE: The current download is LOADED with malware!!! Be sure to decline installing anything extra. The actual installer will be extracted to same folder; run that.
