Sharing ubuntu files
Hey, I just got a new laptop and I have ubuntu on it. I'm trying to transfer all my files from my old computer to my new one and i've tried several guides to using ssh-server and shared/public folder but nothing is working for me. The guides are either outdated for the 12.10 system i have or when I try browsing through my network to get into a shared/public folder on my other computer I get a response saying it isn't receiving any folders when I already have them set up. Can anyone help me out?
I only have 5 gigs on ubuntu one and 400 gigs of info to transfer so i'd like a more direct approach.
