Re: Sharing files between two computer on different networks



Google for VNC - it's a free remote desktop type of program that can run on
virtually anything, and I'm sure it has the ability to copy files across. I
don't know of any way to "map a drive" across the internet, but you probably
could if you had a VPN tunnel between the two boxes. You'll probably have to
tweak the router/firewall settings on each end too...

Hello.

Is there any way to share files between two computers (both PCs running
Windows XP SP2) that are on different networks?
Both computers are connected to the internet through routers, so they have
a
router IP address (168.192....)

Thank you.
