Hi i have networked two pcs via a router and bb connection. I want to go to any computer in the world and access my pc which will be switched on from there. I heard you would need the ip address of the internet and also my router ip to obtain access through the browser and a router password would be required. Anyone know. Can this be done at all. Also heard i have to enable DMZ, if that is correct?

'which will be switched on from there.'

This should read which will be switched on already, and access my computer from any in the world, or local perhaps.
