but in fact it is just that.
You can connect two computers via the internet quite easily, but you must remember that unless the connection is via a secure server the process is fraught with security risks.
Here, in a nuts and bolts fashion is how you set about connecting the two machines:-
1. Both machines must obviously be running, and connected to the internet.
2. Make sure that computers have the NetBEUI and TCP/IP protocols installed. Also, check the Remote Access Services on both to make sure it is set up and working correctly.
3. Find the IP addresses for both computers. You can access this information by typing "ipconfig" at the command prompt.
4. Enable file sharing, and find a path to share on the first computer. An example would be to share "C:\" as "Shared_Drive." Remermber that sharing the contents of your C drive can be a risky business - hence my earlier comment about secure servers.
5. Switch to the second computer. Open a command prompt window and type "Net Use X: \\192.168.0.155\Shared_Drive" and press "Enter."
This will map the second computer's X drive to the first computer's C drive. This will let you use the X drive over the Internet, just as you would your own local drive.
