By hawgfan ·
My brother and I live in same town, both run xp pro and both on same cable internet system. We would like to set up a shared folder that each other can move files to/from. Possible?

If you open up your system across the I'net, that makes you open to attacks. Here in Switzerland our cable provider also gives us a some space on their servers which we can use to share files with other people. It is quite possible you have a similar system. If not, you could open an email account with gmx.net. Appart from this service being free, you get 1 GB space and also such a shared folder system. The problem you may get there is that the language gmx uses is german.

I would consider setting up a share folder on each pc along with a VPN connection as long you both have XP Pro,...you may have to contend IP addresses if yours are not static.
