One computer connecting to a home-LAN (probably VPN)
Posted on 2004-08-22
I'm going to off to college in October and I will have my own computers where I live, but I want to be in control of the home-LAN, because I know the family will have the weekly computer trouble and I can't fly over every week eh?
So what is the best way of doing this simply?
We have 4 computers hooked up to a Router (3 Windows XP and 1 Win 2K) and the Router is then connected to the internet via WAN.
These are the main things I want be able to do: 1) being able to access the shared drives on the computers
2) if possible, be in control of the computers (ie Remote troubleshooting feature) if something goes wrong.
Is this possible and fairly easy to setup? Or what kind of software can do this for me??
