Another easy way to transfer files (and it can be used to easily
browse files as well) is to use the "fish" orotocol in a browser such
as konqueror. You fire up konqueror, type in "fish://<your ip or
computer name>" and then you can browse or copy files from your big
box to the laptop or another computer.

Not unless you are trying or want to log into the laptop from another machine.
