    Can anyone guide me on how to set one of these things up? I occasionally need to access the files on my home computer when I'm on the road or visiting family.

    If you have a router you need to forward port 3389 to your computer as well.

    www.dslwebserver.com (click on the step by step link on the left) has a pretty good guide to set it up, but it's nothing more than said above.
