Access my PC using IP address via Cable modem
Posted on 2001-06-22
I have a cable modem at home and I am sharing out my printer and hard drive (password protected, of
I want to be able to access these shared resources FROM WORK (OR ELSEWHERE ON THE INTERNET) either
through Start-Run-\\188.8.131.52 or via IE5.
I don't know if I can use IE5 since I don't have any web server software loaded... Is there simple FTP
server software I can use?
The problem may be more complicated than just installing FTP server software, however... I can't PING
my machine - the request times out.
Any idea how to accomplish this effectively?
I do not have a static IP address, but I do not customarily reset my cable modem.
Thanks in advance,
