I am trying to transfer files from a PC to a RPi but I can’t find a way. Please help.
Explanation: the PC is actually a Windows device on which I can’t make any installation or configuration. This device has Ethernet and can save files on the network.
I installed Samba on my RPi so that it can receive files. But I can’t find out how to get the device and the RPi connected directly with an Ethernet cable.
Moreover I need the RPi to be able to stay connected to the local Wi-Fi network at the same time. (of course the Windows device doesn't have Wi-Fi).
In the end, the device will store files on the RPi. A software on the RPi will read and parse the files. Then some data will be sent from the RPi to Internet through Wi-Fi.
Someone to help?
- I really have to use Ethernet for file transfer
- I really can't install any software on the Windows device
