How do I access my laptop’s files from my phone?
Tailscale only provides a secure connection between your laptop and your phone.
It is then up to you to run a service the exposes your files over that connection.
As an example, python provides a simple HTTP file server out of the box (https://docs.python.org/3/library/http.server.html). So you could change into a directory that you want to share, and run:
python3 -m http.server 8000
and then only your phone, browse to http://LAPTOP_IP_ADDRESS:8000/
Is it protocol to add to a SupportBot thread?
Plenty of Android SAMBA clients are available on PlayStore, I’ve got a favourite but each to their own.
They effectively give you a local (Android) folder, or folders that map to a share on the Windows device and files can be copied both ways.
Contributions are welcome on all the threads Good point about Android SMB clients. iOS also has this built in nowadays, I think.
