    FTP is one solution.

    Look for an FTP client.

    There is nothing illegal about accessing a folder from your home machine from outside your network.

    That is correct sir!

    Your home machine IS the FTP server.

    Most AUP and ToS contracts with residential ISPs prohibit running such servers.

    To make your machine's FTP viewable from outside your network, you will most likely need to open the port

    well i got the FTP crap all figured out, but it sucks that you have to install the FTP client to access the server..

    FUCKING LAME

    XP is not a server OS, the only other way to do this would be to setup a VPN connection. Or use a FTP server client.

    XP has a ftp client built in. Actually, it has several.

    XP Pro also includes IIS and it's FTP server.

    i doubt your isp will be happy with you having an ftp server, but who knows, they may not notice

    I don't know how secure this is, but I've used it only a couple times if I really needed it. Last time I tried it, it wouldn't let me pick which folders to have access to remotely, it just exposes your entire hard drive. Really simple though.

    download this, setup usernames and passwords for your drives on your 'file box', and open ports 20 and 21 for FTP access.
