and faster to boot. shared folder over VPN is terrible in my experience – Journeyman Geek Jul 4 '10 at 11:31

probable the easiest and most secure way, would be to use a vpn. Here are some solutions:

Hamachi (Free and commercial versions)

Easy VPN (Free)

OpenVPN (free)

They're all pretty easy to set-up.

there should be a folder named as " shared folder" or something like that under the library or documents folder... if you put your files into this folder you can share them ... or just select a folder right click then select properties, there is a shared tab above you can share a file with this ... (but i didn't share a folder before so may be i am wrong) OS is Win 7 but this operation should be same in winXP ;)
