View Full Version : [ubuntu] download files via remote access

May 1st, 2009, 10:20 AM
Dear all

I've searched various forums (plural of forum shouldn’t be fora?) and didn't find yet what I am looking for. Maybe it does not exist or I didn't do a proper search. I also advice that I'm not a networking expert so, please, forgive me if I miss giving some needed information to help me or if this is not the proper forum to make my question

I work in a University where I have access to several scientific (not free) publications. At work, I can see that publishers' sites recognize the IP of the University. So I don't have any chance of accessing these sites at home.

What I'm looking for is a way of downloading files (namely pdf files) via remote access to my work PC. Both my home and work PCs have dynamic IPs, and in both I use Ubuntu 9.04 (alternatively I have a Win2000 PC at work).As you can guess, between home and work there is the University web administrators with firewalls and all their cryptic (for my knowledge) stuff.

Thanks in advance.
