I want to set up a situation from my home pc to 6 friends around Europe, where I can live-stream a webcam+audio feed with a real-time chat to comment on the vid streams. The access must be passworded. I also need to transfer large files between these linked computers. These all need to be secure, encrypted data transfers.

I have read about VPNs, Hamachi, Privoxy. Always the focus is web browsing or basic file sharing. Nothing addressing my specific application.

Please suggest a solution, with software and hardware recommendations. Will a WinXP(home, not Pro)tower with 2.4Ghz/2Gb RAM be powerful enough to host this small network? If no, what do I need to run SMOOTHLY. I have a 10Mb/1Mb ADSL IP connection, TCP/Iv4 set to auto connect. Do I need a static address to make this happen? Should I upgrade my upload speed? To how much? What minimum specs will the other pcs on this network need to receive a smooth stream and quickly post chat comments?

Thanks very much
