Hi gyys - sorry about the long post but any help would be much appreciated... What i am wanting to do is have some space on the web (at least 300mb) for storing files such as .jpg, .mpg, .avi .gif etc etc. I have been looking at lycos and its 5 a month but you get all the 50 emails, php and all the rest of it. its poinbtless paying for it cos i am never gonna use it. all i want is space for files. i just want to be able to ftp to the site, and have certain people be able to download certain files when needed but cant find anywhere thats not over expensive. This is why i thought of using my computer as a web server. opening a partioned section of my drive so people can ftp to it when they have the correct password. I dont know how to go about doing this safely. i use norton firewall and dont want to have to shut it down. if no one knows of a place i can store info on the web as i was originally looking for could anyone please advise me on how to set up my home computer as a web server or direct me to a place i can find out. but i need to do it safely as i dont want everyone accessing everything on my comp. many thanks in advance for you help.
