[maemo-users] [maemo-users] How to pair device with Windows XP SP2 for file transfer?

I should add that the FTP service and server built into Windows Internet 
Information Server (IIS) is not automatically installed with Windows XP. 
If you want to install it in Windows XP Professional, log on as a user 
with administrator privileges and then go to

Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.>Add/Remove Windows Components

and you will see an check box option for installing IIS.

I am not sure if this IIS supported on Windows XP Home.

An alternative, if you have a Samba client installed on the 770 (an 
assumption on my part that such a client has been ported to the 770) is 
to enable a file share on your Windows XP system and use the 770  Samba 
client to browse to the fileshare.

Best Regards,
