    Default File transfer btw PCs with bluetooth

    Hi,
    Any knows if we can transfer files btw PC using Bluetooth..
    I managed to paired the PCs and see the files.. but when I try to copy the file btw PCs, there is always an error message on
    no access right or privilege..

    Anyone has any idea what is wrong with my PC setting?

    Had the same problem with a friends PC. In the end, he could send me a file but i couldn't send him one. Never worked out what the cause was.

    Wonder if it's related to the security setting on the PC..

    Simple answer is that if it's a small file, BT (when it works) is a lot simpler to do than wifi. With wifi, need to setup network sharing to transfer files (or is there a simpler way?)
