[Solved] Android to Android File Transfers via WiFi
I apologize if this isn't the appropriate place for this question. Its not necessarily a Nexus 5 spetcific question as it also involves an Asus TF300T.
I'm currently in a hotel with not only spotty WiFi coverage but also really awful throughput.
I have about 8GB of data I want to transfer to my Asus TF300T running 4.2.1.
I started with airdroid then WiFi File Transfer but it seems the WiFi network blocks access between devices; well at least on ports 1234, 4567 and 8888.
I then tried WiFi Direct but it looks like they (Asus) removed that feature in the last upgrade. Boo.
Finally the TF300T has a keyboard dock with a USB port but when I plug in the N5 (either in MTP or PTP) the TF300T doesn't 'see' the storage.
Uploading to Dropbox from the N5 then downloading to the TF300T would take several days at this rate. If I fellback on LTE, I would eat through the rest of my data plan and the month is young!
There are other applications out there but they're sketchy or questionable at best, and I don't want to load those types of applications on my rooted devices, hence why I'm reaching out to the community for advice / suggestions.
