Hi, i would like somone to use a VPN connection to send pictures to my home network.

however, although i understand how VPN works i am not sure how st set up a vpn connection for the above purpose.

Not sure howto setup VPN,but try click here VNC is very easy to setup,install it,input your password/IP address,get whoever you want to connect to with the same prog,give them the password/IP address(if your on dialup,it changes everytime you connect)and set a folder on your PC for "Sharing"(little hand appears under it)and put the files into it.Then,whenever your online,they should be able to access this folder without difficulty.(but networks have a habit of winding up the administrator,you!) :-)
