The other day, I needed to share files with a Windows based computer. I did not have any ftp nor samba server installed on my machine. For some reason ssh did not work either. As a quick solution, I decided to use a trick I saw some time ago. I started a python process which works as a simple HTTP server. Next, I opened a browser on remote machine and connected to my HTTP server and downloaded the files through HTTP.
