Hi sainavya1215,

As you want to transfer files, I think a simple VPN would suit your needs.
A fast and free solution is Hamachi (http://www.hamachi.cc), no need to do any port-forwarding on your routers or anything else.
Just create a networkname which hasn't been used yet and enter a password.
An extra virtual network adapter will be installed on your computer, in the software you can read the IP of all computers joined to the network and use those to share files with as-if they where in the same network.

Greetings,

LucF

Try Foldershare, www.foldershare.com
or XP's Default " remote desktop connection"
or Windows Netmeeting. All you need a real/routable/static IP
if Nated, you need to port forward the request in the router.

-You can use AIM (www.aim.com) to share a folder. Works like a charm! Even allows resume in-case file transfers gets interrupted. This is the SIMPLEST & FASTEST set-up solution, that can be put to work within minutes, and allows you to even download a whole folder at once. And it's a LOT better than the file-transfer utilities of Yahoo Messenger & MSN.

-Another way that would take a bit more time, but is much more powerful,  is to set up a free FTP server (http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/) & set it's permissions so that with a special username & password you can access whatever folders you specify --- or the whole hard drive if you want.

-Finally, if you simply want to use the computer from anywhere on the Internet, install realVNC or tightVNC (www.realvnc.com, www.tightvnc.com). You may need to forward ports on your router or firewall to get it working, but once you learn the basics of port forwarding, it's simple to set up, run, and use.

I've used all three solutions at one time or another.

Addendum: With AIM running on the remote computer, you don't even need to know it's IP address. Just the id under which AIM is signed under there. You'll need an AIM id too & have AIM running on your computer.

In AIM, you need to do go to this menu: My Aim-->Edit Options-->Edit Preferences-->File Sharing
Then browse to the folder to be shared & set what File Access permissions you want to set.
