Hi guys,

So a friend of mine has a folder setup on his PC that he can access by inputting IP address, along with some other information. It looks similar to this: \\151.x.x.xxx\data\data.

How would I go about setting something up similarly on mine? I run Server 08 R2 if it matters

Ive tried all of that, but it doesnt allow me to set a share over the web. As in to access away from home.

To access it over the web, you must have the web services running on the server, and the IP Address defined so that you can find it on the web. You either need a static IP address from your ISP, or you will need to use a service like Dynamic DNS - http://dyn.com/dns/ to access the folder.

I think you need a webserver or something that can dish the files out to you.
