For a server I suggest ftpshell.com
and a client coreftplite

If across the internet then FTP as suggested or even setting up a SHoutcast server would be easy.
If it is internally it's just a matter of setting up a shared folder and accessing it through your local LAN connection.

Yeah its through my lan. So all I need to do is make a shared folder on my desktop then search for it on my laptop correct?
Assuming these systems are using Windows 2000 or greater? If you are using Win98 or WinME then things get a little trickier... If not, then yeah, all you need to do is create a folder, share it out (obviously make sure that both computers are in the same IP subnet.. if you are using DHCP then you are set) and then just browse to that folder via the network and your other system can access the files and open them in WMP, WInAmp, or whatever you use to play music with...

Check the home network tutorial listed on the networking page. It's the second one from the top.
I'm sure after you readit , you are going to be able to set your network by yourself.

My desktop is running XP pro and my laptop is running xp home, should that make a differance or no? Thanks for the help I really appreciate it.
Not for a home network.
Share the directory you wish and then browse for it in Network Neighborhood and you should be able to see it.
Again, you will need to be in the same IP subnet. So if you have a router providing your IP info you should be OK.
And again, there is a great tutorial here at G2G on home networking:
