  1. Connecting Remotely

    Thanks for the answer but, perhaps I didn't word it like I should have. In a nutshell, I want to be able to open up a browser, type in ftp or (http) :// (my IP) and have access to my HDD's content. Sort of like me serving my own PC... (if you want to call it that)? I mean, if I have to resort to software, then OK, but I'd prefer not too in order to save system resources and avoid having to purchase anything. If anyone else can contribute, I would appreciate it. Thanks again, 'mjm1231'
  2. This has been on my mind for the longest time. I've searched this forum and others and I still haven't found an answer. What I want to do is connect w/ my home computer from any computer I'm at (work, school, friend's house, etc...). However, I want to avoid installing any 3rd party software on my PC and I'd like to do it through a browser like IE, FireFox, etc. I don't need to be connected like VNC or any of those type of programs where you can see the desktop. All I want is remote access to my HDD content w/ the possibility of opening, deleting, editing, etc through either FTP or HTTP. As well, I'm like to try to keep it as secure as possible w/ passwords and 1 user-access-at-a-time connection only. I've been told by people that IIS in windows allows you to do this via FTP - but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to get it working. I'm running XP Pro SP2, Netgear router, and have the Windows firewall up along w/ Norton Internet Security (which seems to have its own firewall). If anyone can shed some light on this I'd be very grateful. Thanks!
