Amiga to PC file transfer over lan

I'm sure this has been posted elsewhere but just looking for a little help with transfering files over the lan. I have my lan card working fine with Genesis and AWEB for Internet. I can ping all the other computers but just wondering about a good FTP program or what ever I need to move the files around. Right now I am using AMI-PC on the parallel port which works but is rather slow. I just haven't setup the file transfering yet or access to and mapping the PC drives from the 1200 on the lan.

How about this for a kluge(?) network setup.

Here is what I have on the lan. An Amiga 1200 3.9 with 040 and 32 meg. A PC running on WIN XP Pro. A PC running 98 talking to the Amiga on parallel port that is also on the lan. A PC running DOS 6.22 on the lan running 64HDD PRO talking to my Commodore 128D. I can move stuff from any machine to any other machine by some method but I'd like to get the Amiga/PC connection onto ethernet rather than parallel ports.

Just to say I did it I'd like to be able to access and run a disk image on the Amiga HD from the 128D over the 64HDD/Lan connection.

I'd think about getting Amiga Explorer by Cloanto... a very easy to use package, low CPU / RAM overhead... even works on a 2mbyte A600.


Amigasamba, slightly complicated to setup...

Just use an ftp server on Amiga (look for rc-ftpd on Aminet) and use any PC ftp client to log into it, thats all

Or don't install the whole samba package on the Amiga, but just use smbfs to mount the PC's SMB shares over.
