Tell me , how do I connect to my friend's PC to transfer files. My friend is about five miles away.

I don't want to spend on any type of hardware.

My friend and I both have dial-up internet connections.

We've got some real important files to transfer.

I use Windows XP Media Center Edition and my friend has Windows XP Home.

XP pro* | or share a gmail drive.**

*Windows XP Professional

**Share a gmail account (gmail.com). After that,download the gmail drive on both computers. Then (optional) download Gmail Notify on both computers (so you both know when the other is active on the drive)

All of the gmail stuff is free. :tazz:

Or, you could set up a small FTP server on the machine that you want to connect to to get files. Most free FTP servers however do not encrypt the information, and your usernam and pw can be picked up if anyone is listening on the wire. If you decide to go this way, post back and I'll help ya with it?
