UPDATES:

  • Various bug fixes.
  • multi-file transfers
  • cancel button
  • CLI version

Flying Carpet enables wireless, encrypted, cross-platform file transfer over automatically configured ad hoc networking. No network infrastructure required (access point, router, switch). Just two laptops (Mac, Linux, and Windows supported) with wireless chips in close range.

Don't have a flash drive? Don't have access to a wireless network or don't trust one? Need to move a file larger than 2GB between different filesystems but don't want to set up a file share? Try it out!

Notes/Restrictions:

  • 64-bit only. Supported Operating Systems: macOS 10.12+, Windows 7+, and Linux Mint 18. I only have access to so many laptops, so if you've tried on other platforms please let me know whether it worked.

  • Disables your wireless internet connection while in use (does not apply to Windows when receiving).

  • On Mac: May have to click Allow or enter username and password at prompt to clear Flying Carpet SSID from your preferred networks list. You may also have to right-click and select "Open" if your settings don't allow running unsigned applications.

  • On Windows: Must run as administrator (to allow connection through firewall and clear ARP cache). Right-click "Flying Carpet.exe" and select "Run as administrator." Click "More info" and "Run anyway" if you receive a Windows SmartScreen prompt. You may also need to disable WiFi Sense.

  • I need help testing on Linux and supporting non-Debian-based distributions! Currently only confirmed to work on Mint 18.

  • Flying Carpet should rejoin you to your previous wireless network after a completed or canceled transfer. This will not happen if the program freezes, crashes, or if the windows is closed during operation.

Please submit feedback on Github or send to tspiegl@gmail.com. Thanks for downloading!
