Cable to Cable Internet Connection

By Friscojw ·
I have a home office with an XP Professional desktop and a worker running XP at thier house. We both have cable internet. What is the best way for us to interchange info or map drives between the two devices? Is VPN software part of XP or do I need to make a purchase through the cable provider

If your doing simple file sharing, you might try XP's remote access. You can configure it different ways and have some security also.

VPN is built natively into XP.

Just a caveat.

Most Cable ISP severely limit the amount of data that you can upload.

At a minimum, most cable systems have upload speeds that are less than 10% of the download speed.

You can setup FTP directories under IIS. Make sure to set login ids and passwords. You will need to provide IP addresses each day since they change with DHCP.

Or you can share files with Windows Messanger which is standard with Windows XP.
