    Hey,

    I wish to acess files from a PC running Windows XP which is connected through a Belkin ADSL Router remotely.

    I have Shared the folders I need, and wish to access these folders at home.

    The PC which has the files has Windows XP Pro, Do I need windows XP Pro on the one at home? Or can I do it through Home Edition. The PC is left on 24/7

    Is the built in Windows XP VPN wizard all I need?

    Many thanks, Never used VPN before.

    A router which supports VPN, or a VPN gateway if i'm not mistaken :)
