Question ID: 458920
I want to map a drive over the internet between two computers.  Both
computers are behing linksys routers (i have full control over both). 
Both networks use NAT.  I have a Win2003 and WinXP box on each
network.  I'd rather not set up a VPN.
There is no answer at this time.

A brief pointer:

There are a few solutions you may want to consider (other than
PCAnywhere or similar products).  One is a VNC with file transfer
capability - Ultr@VNC does this ( ),
and other VNC server/clients may also do it by now.

You may also consider the WebDAV feature (websearch for an
introduction and use) and see for the resources
- the software listing is at

You can also try to map the NETBOIS-Ports through your router. These
are 137, 138, 139 as well as 445. After that you can Map your drive
over Explorer Menü Tools>Map Network Drive with the public IP of your
router. (Ex. \\\c$)
For me this worx ok, but SECURITY-RISKY ouououo!!!
