I've been using Linux for about 4-5 months...and I think I've past that install/uninstall and distro checkout phase. System's pretty stable and no problems as such...I think now is the time to take the next step. Start to explore real power of linux. I've tried my hands on Samba to connect my linux desktop to WinXP and it works.
But here's what i want to do. I happen to travel and I sometimes need to access some specific files from my home computer. I would like to know if there is a way whereby i can run a server (http or ftp) to access my files from my home machine when i'm travelling.
Get a dynamic dns is you don't have a static ip address (noip and dnydns provide that) and then you can just use ssh anc scp to transfer files. If you're using a Windows box while traveling, you can use Putty for ssh.
