How to connect Remotely?

  arminmckidd 13:40 21 Feb 2010

Ok I have a PC and a Laptop, both are running Win7 64bit.
I want to be able to access my PC hard drives when I am out and about, working or travelling from my laptop so i dont have to store masses of files on my laptop because that would make it slower.

Is there an application specifically for that purpose or could i simply use windows remote access? (which iv never used before)

Iv read a bit online about VPN and host to LAN but didnt really grasp it enough to try it.

What would you suggest?

Sorry USMB, I was searching for another link and posted in error.

Here's a link to show how to set up remote access on XP. click here

There are a few other applications like Teamviewer, RealVNC is another click here There's another pretty good one but it's name escapes me at the moment.

I would go with Teamviewer - free and a great little program.
