I now have a Samsung Galaxy S Android phone running Froyo 2.2.1 and an Archos 101 Android tablet - also running Froyo.
Both are 'connected' to the same home network via wifi.
Is there a method by which I can copy files directly between the two devices using Wifi?
Bluetooth is also an option, but since I want to copy a lot of thumbnail images, I think this is too slow.
The solution I choose:
I managed to copy files using the ftp protocal , using swiFTP as ftp server on my Archos table, and using Ghost Commander on my Samsung phone.
If you want to try something similar: you might look at my comments to the accepted answer on my other question: question about a 550 error I received during my initial ftp testing in order to see what I had to do to make it running.
