  1. Hi, is there anyway to network for example me and a friends pc so we can use eachothers HD contnets through the internet? Can you do it through windows or do you need to buy software? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    VPN.

    Are you talking programs, or just the contents of your hard drive, like media files or whatnot?

    Both would be nice, but probably just documents and media.

    You have many choices for sharing files over the internet:

    VPN
    SSH
    FTP

    I'd personally go with some VPN connection which you should be able to make windows do. But you could always use regular FTP, but restrict it to just your friends IP addresses. Or indeed you could use SSH which is very secure.
