Hi guys and girls, im looking for a program with a very specific purpose, i know one exists, but i just cant find one, i hope someone can help me, my problem is that.....

Im going to uni in a month, and i want to leave my pc at home on constantly just connected to the internet via broadband, but i want to be able to access my computer via the internet to pick up certain files while im at uni. I dont want to put files on a site like foldershare.com as i do not know what files ill want off my computer while im at uni.

someone please help or give me an alternate idea, thanks :)

Personally I would put all the files you want in a folder and share that folder using apache. Then use a .htaccess file to stop people accessing this without a password.

This is the only one I know of but have never used it click here Type "Virtual Private Networks" into google for more.

Why not use a portable USB hard drive - you'll get all your data onto one without any problems, and can just carry it around and plug-in wherever you are.

Imagine the hassle you'll have if your system throws a "wobbly" and you can't get remote access to it!!!!

real vnc click here will allow you to access your home PC from where-ever.If you set it up with a password,then only you can access it.
