    PLEASE HELP. I have searched the internet and cannot figure something out. I have a rogers hi-speed modem (it receives an IP) I have a 2 computer network.
    I have DHCP on the router that gives the computers addresses. I wish to connect to home from work to a private address (192.168.X.X) inside my home network.

    What is the naming convention to remotely map a drive from work????? I cannot figure it out. cannot use UNC as I have one IP from rogers then a private address from my router. Please help. best regards

    Well first thing 192.168.x.x is a private network ip. You cant connecto to that because your pc at work will be looking for something on your intranet unless you edit your local ip info. However that wont get you where you wanna be either.

    You will need to connect to the IP that the Rogers modem pick's up. You will need to adjust your DMZ or port forwarding settings to point to the pc you want to connect to. I've never tried to map a network drive in that way. Maybe you should setup a VPN. I'm kinda new to those to but i think you can just use the UNC after the VPN is setup. (were usein $1200 vpn firewalls to do it for our banks)

    What are you attempting to do on home network

    In what way are you trying to use your home network (what is the reason for your access)?

    You can use PCAnywhere or VNC w/ port forwarding on your linksys to remote control the machine.

    PCAnywhere has file transfer abilities...
    You could also try Remote Assistance (winXP), or Terminal Services (if you are using server OS)

    If you are only wanting to access files on your home machine, you could enable FTP (port forward on Linksys), and configure on home machine.
