ES File Explorer is Android application that very popular in file manager application segment with complete features.

The feature that caught my attention is LAN and FTP Server (Remote Manager) features that allows you to transfer files on your Android smartphone to laptop via WiFi which smartphones and laptop using the same WiFi connection. This is similar to AirDroid function, you would understand if ever used. Just that it is more manually applications.

First, through LAN feature

First you should know when using ES File Explorer for this function is the IP address used by your laptop. This can be obtained from the Command Prompt (Windows button + R then type CMD), then type “ipconfig” (without the quote). You will get like shown on the picture below.
IPv4 Address : 192.168.1.1

ipconfig

Then open ES File Explorer on your smartphone and go to LAN.
Click New to create new server then fill with the data as in the second picture below.
192.168.1.1 you get it from ipconfig.
manik dropbox is my share folder.
Remember to check Anonymous if you set your share folder to public share.
