Virtual Networking for Macs and PCs
Posted on 2007-09-28
I know very little about networking, so I'm coming to the Experts to help get me started.
Is it possible to create VPN-like file sharing system between a group of Mac and PC computers over the Internet?
My PC would serve at the "main" computer, running Windows XP. My computer is always connected to the Internet over a cable-modem connection. I want certain people to be able to connect remotely to my computer, whether they be on a Mac or another PC, and grab files from certain folders on my computer. But I also want anyone in my virtual network to be able to connect remotely to anyone else's computer in our network to share files.
Without knowing very much about the obvious security issues this presents: Is it possible? Is it a good/bad idea? How do I get started?
