    Good day. I have a PC running Windows 7 Home Premium at my shop. I want to be able to access the files and folders on my shop PC from my home PC (which is obviously on a different network). Any suggestions on how I could do that would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    MrCanuck;
    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    You have a few different options. Probably the easier, more firewall friendly involve the use of third party software like
    https://secure.logmein.com/products/free/ free for personal non-commercial use
    TeamViewer - Free Remote Access and Remote Desktop Sharing over the Internet again free for personal non-commercial use
    or a couple others with a bit of a steeper learning curve and required firewall configuration

    Good luck and let us know how you're progressing

    You may use various remote support services such as gosupportnow.com, logmeinrescue.com etc in order to remotely access your shop computer from home PC.
