  1. My first Question: How can i share a folder over the network without uploading to any server? i want the users to download directly from my computer.

    2nd question: is it possible to connect two computers over lan by just IP?

    #1) sounds like you want to share something on your system with
    your friends connected to the Internet.
    normal sharing would look like
    Code:
    Lan based sharing between A and B
    ISP--modem--router--system-A
                   +----system-B
    
    Code:
    public sharing between A and B
    system-B--ISP ....  ISP--modem--router--system-A
                          
    
    #2) but of course, as shown in the wiring for #1, but I suspect you may mean
    Code:
    Lan based sharing between A and B
    ISP--modem--router--system-A--system-B
    
    which is called ICS. Yes A and B can share, but for B to have access
    to the Internet, system A must be running.
