I want to copy files from one Ubuntu system to another.They are both in local wireless network.

I shared entire home dir on one, and tried to copy some files to another. It works for some time and then it just hangs at some point.

I use Nautilus to copy files.

Here is the example screenshot, it just hangs like this:

enter image description here

After I cancel, Nautilus icon in lauchbar keeps progress bar, so I guess there is some problem.

What can be the problem?

Fixed by using Krusader.

As time goes I'm more and more disappointed with Nautilus. It's slow and buggy.
