FTP is an easy way to transfer files over the Internet and in this guide PCSTATS will explain the basics of using it, and how to set up a home FTP server in WindowsXP.

You could use remote desktop software, but that typically has anemic file transfer options and slow performance. What's the solution? Why FTP of course!
