[XML-SIG] Hoping someone can help with this small problem

Actually I found some code online for file transfer using the socket class.
So I'm going to fiddle with that to work with my existing project code. My
major hurdle now is getting two computers to connect with a crossover cable.
And sorry, I forgot to mention I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 on a laptop and a
desktop (hoping to get a laptop to laptop setup working instead). I
appreciate the fast response.

Via Ethernet? As plain Ethernet frames?

I bet you have a bit more of a protocol stack available on top of that, such
as IP/TCP/HTTP or something.

Any help here requires a bit more detail from your side, such as the type of
machines (PCs? embedded devices?), the operating system, the available
software, the supported network protocols, the kind of "XML files" you want
send, how they are generated (based on what kind of data), ...

Maybe XML-RPC is of interest here?
