    I was not sure where to put this but here
    I go to a tech. school and I'm studying computer networking. We need a grad. project to pass that deals with out related area of study(computernetworking).
    What i would like to do is connect two computers over the Internet (no direct attachment what so ever) and be able to share files and etc.
    I need help on how to accomplish this and what things i will be needing, and how difficult it might be.
    If you have an estimated amount of time it will take will also be greatly helped. :biggrin

    All i know is that i might be needing a sever in order to complete this.

    All help will be greatly appreciated

    Not sure what you're asking here. Do you want us to help you do your homework - or are you asking us a more specific question related to networking? The answer is a VPN, BTW

    It's not home work.
    But no, any help at all, or any advice
    we did not learn anything about this kind of networking yet so if i do it, will be a bonus for me.

    you should probably go find out what a vpn is first, before trying to implement one, even if it's just for a "lab" environment.

    i know kinda what it is
    a virtual privet network
    usually created as "tunnels" though a network that are safe and secure
    like the internet, its a large network, per say, and its like creating a tunnel that only has 2 entrences so its safe from others.

    There are hardware-based VPNs, and there are software-based VPNs.

    Enjoy your research! :)

    What - connect two LANs to each other securely (with no direct link between them) - over the Internet? What ways would you suggest, other than a VPN?

    If the requirement is just to share files between two different networks, theres always FTP. Not as secure as vpn perhaps, but that depends on the requirements of the system you are looking at.

    Or, you could consider implementing IPoAC. A Recent test showed significant improvements over regular ADSL.

    all im wanting to use this for is file sharing between 2 computers in two different place not any where close.
    now i was able to fine vpn softwere, and im not that shure about it. FTP, im also could o, but I'd rather lern how to make a vpn, because if im right, in the future, i will beable to use it again for my own personal use.
    this is so tiring and hard to figure out :knife:

    When you want it badly enough, you'll take the time to look for it. :rolleyes:

    Yeeeesh. Third year of 'tech school' and you can't be bothered to use Google? Seriously - you're asking us to do all your work for you - not even bothering to make it look like you're actively interested in participating in the community. Lemme guess - you're the guy that leans over and copies other people's answers in your tech school, right? :rolleyes:

    Seriously - I'm not doing this just to have a pop at you here - but you need to start fending for yourself. If my nephew came and asked me to do his homework for him and tell him to do one - why should you think you're any different?

    well i can now
    I'm not even supposed to be on this site when I'm at school, its not "approved" and the principal was right behind me, and no i don't copy, I'm the one who does some of the work and people copy off of me.
    and I'm not asking for help
    any tips or helpful hints that's all
