In Bohemicus, you can very easily transfer files and folders between 2 or more local computers running this software behind the same WiFi router.
Let’s transfer some files…
First, a little example. Let’s transfer this bunch of files here using a virtualized computer so that you can see both screens at the same time. But of course, you can transfer files between two real machines as well. Just make sure they are in the same local area network, behind the same router.
So, in the source computer, you just switch to the File Transfer tab and just drag and drop your files. As you can see, they are instantly transferred to the other machine to your specified folder, which opens automatically once the transfer is finished.
Select your target machine
Select your target machine by selecting it from the drop down list.
If there are no machines in the list, check that Bohemicus is running in your target machine and click the 3dot button to search all Bohemicus instances in the vicinity.
Specify the IP addresses – mostly done automatically
How to specify the addresses of your machines so that they can connect to each other? This is mostly done automatically once you run an instance of Bohemicus. Bohemicus searches the immediate environment for any other instances of Bohemicus and sets up the IP addresses appropriately. Once your connection is setup, this IP box here turns green along with a message displayed at the bottom.
If your machines do not connect to each other…
If this does not happen, make sure both machines are connected to the same router. If they still do not connect, then enter the target IP address manually. Just open Bohemicus in your target machine and take a look at the Help tab. The local IP address is written right here. Now, you take this target IP address and enter it in your source machine. Click the arrow button in your source machine. These 2 machines should now become connected.
Specify the target folder
You can also change your target folder where all your transferred files will be saved in your target machine. Just click on this 3-dots button and select a folder of your preference.
