Sharing folder online with bro, how?

  Mysticnas 19:04 02 Jan 2004


Hiya, My bro's got some DV clips he want's me to edit for him. However, we live a distance apart and posting is not an option. Is there a way for him to allow me to see and download files from his shared folder?

We both have XPpro and fast broadband connections. he uses Pipex, and i NTL. He has zonealarm firewall and Netgear hardware (modem and router) which has builtin hardware firewall.

I have Norton personal firewall.

Thanks in advance.

Msn or anything like that?

Or perhap's another option would be to get some web space....

Without setting up a VPN then my guess is you would need to get your brother to set up an FTP server on his machine so you can download them from it. If the files are very big this could take some time. If they aren't massive then you could get him to email them to you - I doubt this will be viable though. How big a file are we talling about?

about 4 to 5 DV taps worth, i'd say at least 7gbish...

but staying online isn't a problem, we both got fast net connections.

Not sure about this but isn't remote desktop a possibility.

I am not sure, but think you should be able to grab what files you need. Especially with a broadband connection. Look in control panel - system - remote.
