    question about connecting to another PC over the internet

    okay, i have a cable modem, and i used to be able to get to the servers at work by typing the ip address and the share name. eg.. \\123.456.189.1\d$ (of course that's not the real ip address but you get the picture) for some reason it stopped letting me do that. I know the default share is the same, and everything, but my computer says "windows could not find the computer" or similar message.. any ideas?

    well, if the IT staff at your office have any brains... they've firewalled the machines making it impossible to do such things.

    Of course a competent IT sttaff wouldn't have let that happen in the first place.

    you alo might want to check a few tcp/ip settings on either end as well... make sure that you have netbios over tcp/ip enabled...

    however you might want to mention the fact that the pcs can be accessed from the internet.
