Icaros Desktop is a pre-configured AROS desktop environment for the PC platform, distributed on a bootable live media. The AROS Research Operating System is a open source lightweight, efficient and flexible desktop operating system, aiming at being compatible with AmigaOS 3.1 at the API level, while improving on it in many areas.

Let me introduce VmwAROS PUB: virtual volume, a space between your Windows/Linux host operating system, and the AROS virtual machine. During boot time, VmwAROS loads YAFS, a simple but fairly working ftp server. YAFS is configured to use the Work:Pub directory as default repository for transferred files. For your comforts, this drawer had been assigned to the PUB: virtual volume. Just enter PUB: (and don't forget the ":") in any Wanderer windows or in any shell one to go straight to this location.

In order to communicate with the PUB: virtual volume from your host operating system, you have to follow a simple procedure. Just download a good FTP client and setup a new site entry with your AROS virtual machine's IP address, open the advanced properties of that site and choose an ftp connection. In the login/password field, just enter anonymous and a fake password, whatever one will work. If you're using Windows, please use Filezilla, it works fine.
