How to Transfer Files Between Two Computers Using IP Address

Updated on Dec 19, 2018 by Jean to PC Transfer

How to connect and transfer files between two computers using their IP addresses without using a serial cable or a special parallel transfer cable? Let EaseUS Todo PCTrans help. As long as the two computers, or perhaps multiple computers, are connected to the same LAN, you can easily put the IP address for a direct connection for data share or transfer.


Every system that is connected to a router or switch gets an IP address assigned to it from the administrator (Static IP addresses) or by default (with DHCP protocol). This IP address is used to identify a system on the network. So with this IP address, you can request information or send information to another device.

To share files between two computers via an IP address, usually, there are two ways.

  • By a mapped drive - As you know, this type of IP connection creates a mapped drive to the shared computer where you can edit, delete and add files on the Network.
  • By a network cord/cable - Also, you can connect the two computers using a proper cable.

Either way enables you to transfer information from one computer to another. However, it's too time-consuming, most importantly, too complicated for average users to go through with the configuration and settings.

So alternatively, let's find an easier yet more intelligent, and comprehensive way for file transfer between two operating systems, computers, a computer, and a laptop, or just laptops of more than two sets. Here, we recommend fast file transfer software.
