I've heard a lot about "remote access" on a computer, but i'm not quite clear on the reasons/advantages of using it. I've used a few Unix shells in my day, and i've heard that that is considered remote access of a computer.
I have somewhat of a n00b question... I have a box at NCSU, and a box at home. I was wondering if there was a way i could remote access my box and home, and what exactly that would entail? What would i be able to do? Do the 2 boxes have to be on the same network? Can i access the harddrive of my remote box? Can i install/download files USING the remote box (i'm behind a firewall at NCSU)?
Both boxes are running the exact same windows XP Sp2 systems and pretty much the same configs. Any information/sites you could give me relating to the topic would be much appreciated.
