How can I make use of Wi-Fi Direct enabled Android devices?

AllenRayz January 5, 2013

Basically what I intend to do is to use this particular method for transferring files between these devices and Ubuntu/Windows laptops. But I don’t know how. Could you help me? Thanks.

    I use File Expert for all of my connection needs. It even has WiFi Direct support besides Web sharing, ftp, samba etc...

    Hello, another possibility for you is something like Tonido:

    I would say your best chance would be with connectify.

    You can also install an SSH or ftp server on the phone and then use Nautilus with ssh://ip-or-name-of-your-phone/ or ftp://ip-or-name-of-your-phone/ URLs.

    AirDroid is a free app that lets you wirelessly manage your Android from your favorite browser of Windows/Mac/Linux computer or other devices.

    Look at Connectify, VirtualRouter, Winhotspot and/or AndroidWifi.
