Hello

I have two Ubuntu Virtual Machines directly connected on the same LAN.

I need to be able to transfer files between the two machines quickly over the network, rather than using an external drive.

Would someone be able to point me in the right direction as i can't find out how to directly connect from one Ubuntu to another?

Thanks
