Are you looking for FTP transfer between 2 hosts?

You can Netcat or ftp for that.

Open a terminal using xterm h1 and run below for receiving,

nc -l -p 1234 > rx.txt

Open another terminal using xterm h2, and run below for sending:

nc -w 3 1234 < out.txt


You can simply use iperf h1 h2 to check the bandwidth.

refer for Netcat

simply type "help" on Mininet prompt for options.
