Hi All,

I am new to the QEMU emulator,Kindly help me how to transfer files from linux to the qemu or viceversa.

Simple: Treat the virtual machine as if it was a real machine and
transfer files to and from it.

More to the point, the following are the most common methods:

A) If the virtual machine runs Windows, OS/2 or Linux, create a Samba
network share on the Linux host (or anywhere else), put files on it,
and access the share over the network from the virtual machine. Some
qemu versions include options to automate this.

B) On the Linux host create a disk image of a floppy or CD with the
desired files, then use qemu commands to virtually insert the disk
image file in the virtual floppy or CD drive.  Again there are tools
to automate this.

C) Run a file transfer tool such as rsync, ssh, ftp etc. on the virtual
machine and the Linux host and use it to transfer files.

D) With the virtual machine not running, loop mount its virtual hard
drive on the Linux host, and copy files to and from it.
