    Accessing files from another network computer?

    Does anyone know how to access the files on the tablet from another network computer. I have no problem accessing the computer from the tablet.

    I think he wants to be able to access his home computer from another network, like my daughter's home in GA to my laptop in AZ.

    Depends on what we man by accesses... TeamViewer can remote to other networks. There are other programs/apps that allow file transfer over http. Splastop can remote to other networks, if the PC is registered with Google. What exactly are we trying to accomplish?

    I actually thought the question was pretty clear. The OP says he can access files on the computer from the tablet. He wants to access files on the tablet from the computer.

    ES File Explorer will allow you to move files from the tablet to the computer (and vice versa), but that's not the same thing as pulling up a file manager on the computer and seeing all the files on the tablet using your network. Of course if you use a wired connection between the two, the tablet or phone can become a removable drive of the computer and then it's easy (in theory -- lots of problems doing this with many devices).

    I thought it was pretty clear that the OP wanted to see the files on the Thrive from the pc, that is why I recommended the app I mentioned. I think what is not clear is where the OP wants to have the access on the pc from, is it from the same network the Thrive is on, or is it from another network outside, like having the Thrive at home and accessing from work. Until the OP makes that part clear, they will get several types of options.

    You are absolutely freaking right, I totally missed the word computer after network, so sorry.

    hi give this a try


    Phone To Computer (also remote control)


    Market Barcode for Phone To Computer

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.raz.ptc
    For those of you who do not have a barcode scanner

    This application will require you to install software on your computer. It should support Mac, Linux and Windows. The application is only currently tested on Windows and Ubuntu 10.10.

    Things you can do:
    * Remote control your computer's mouse/keyboard from your phone
    * Execute user defined macros (Special keys/key combinations) on your computer from your phone
    * Allows you to download/upload files between your phone and computer
    * Scan barcodes with your phone and have them show up in your computer
    * Browse your computer's files allowing you to view properties and delete files on your computer
    * Allows you to view images from your computer on your phone via the File Browser
    * Take screen shots of your computer screen with your phone

    The upload feature will allow you to send any files (pictures, movies, documents, sound) from your phone to your computer! On top of that you can open websites on your computer directly from your phone.

    You can find the computer software along with video tutorials (which are now kind of out of date) at https://sites.google.com/site/razsapps/
