How to access your home PC files remotely


There are a couple of ways of doing this. Here are a couple of my favourites. All of these require you keep your computer on.

1. Opera Unite
If you install the freeware browser Opera, then create an account with them, you can start Opera Unite, an online service for accessing files and services from anywhere. After you have added the File Sharing application from the Unite sidebar, you can configure the application. Choose to add a share location and choose your main hard drive (generally C:). Then, change your password and make sure that you set your Opera Unite account to private and check that File Sharing is password-protected. Then simply navigate to the URL that Opera provides (generally username.operaunite.com), enter your username and password and then you'll have full access to your files. Note that you will need to keep Opera running on your Computer

2. FTP server. *Only recommended for advanced users
By running a FTP server software like FileZilla on your home computer, you can create a far more powerful file sharing experience. Now, first up, you should go to DynDNS.com, sign up for a free account and then create a Dynamic DNS host. Next, download and install the DynDNS Updater and run on your computer. Now, to access the files that you have configured with your FTP server software, simply use your DynDNS hostname that you created in the sign-in process into Windows Explorer or Internet Explorer (or any browser) with the ftp:// prefix instead of http://. However, if your computer is on a home network behind a router, you will need to configure that also. Set up a port forward (generally Port 20,21, and 23) to the computer running the FTP server. The other advantage to this is that by finding out the server's local IP address (open Run, then type cmd, then type ipconfig, and write down the IP address shown) you can also access the files from the server within your network, simplifying the file access process greatly.

3. Orb 2.0
This is one of the slickest and smoothest methods. Simply download and install the Orb desktop client from Orb.com (also create an account and enter your details into the Orb client), then add any folders you want to share. Then, allow some time for it to index your content. Now, from outside your network, log in to Orb.com with the account you created and click on the Applications button at the top of screen. If you want the music, videos, photos or documents you specified in the setup process, choose the appropriate application, or choose File Sharing to access all of your files at once. Simply navigate the folders as if it was your local computer and you will be able to use them flawlessly. You can even access other physical drives like your CD drive online.

4. TeamViewer
This is a brilliant VNC replacement application. Simply create an account, then install the client on your computer. Also, enter your account details into the client (click the button at the bottom right of screen) and write down your 12-digit ID and password. From here, you have several options remotely. I recommend that you should link up your account first. Navigate to login.teamviewer.com and login, then add a client using the ID and password from your computer. Now, whenever you login to your account, you wont have to remember your ID/password. You can install the client on another computer and connect with your account directly or login to teamviewer.com and use the Java-based applet to connect and use your computer as if you were in front of it.

These should work well when accessing your files.

How to choose a backup device


Hello all,

I work in data recovery and I'm always being asked what kind of backup device my customers should use. The fact is, there are a lot of choices and a lot of different situations with different answers.

Whatever device you choose for backup, remember the most important part of backing up is to always have more than one copy. Your backup device does you little good if it holds the only copy of your files.

USB Flash drives:
Pro's Cons
Most Inexpensive Easy to damage
Easiest to Transport Easy to Lose
High Compatibility Difficult to recover
Fast copy speeds

External Hard Drives:

Pro's Cons
Inexpensive Some are bulky
Higher Capacity Greater damage if dropped
Easy to transport Can be expensive to recover
High Compatibility Some require external power
Faster Copy Speeds
Easier to recover
More rugged

Secondary Hard drive(internal)

Pro's Cons
Inexpensive Not optional on most laptops
Higher Capacity Not optional on all Desktops
Fully compatible Can fail simultaneously
Fastest Copy Speeds Does not protect data if PC Stolen
Easy to Recover Requires some knowledge to install
More Rugged
Less risk of damage

NAS Box or Small Server

Pro's Cons
Higher Capacity Higher Cost
Redundancy is Optional Requires more knowledge to setup
Accessible to all PC's
on your network at once
Fast Copy Speeds
Low risk of damage
Compatible with most PC


RAID5 NAS or Server

Pro's Cons
Highest Capacity Highest Cost
Highest Redundancy Requires most knowledge to Setup
Fastest Copy Times Requires specialized equipment or software
Accessible to all PC's Most expensive to recover if failed
on your network at once
Ability to survive single
drive failures without
data loss.


Now, armed with that short list of options, let's help you decide which option best suits you. If you move around a lot, you go to school, work out of the office or travel for work a USB flash drive is often the simplest form of backup and allows you to move data between home, office or school without lugging a large drive around. we recommend these as a part of most peoples backup solution. Next you will want a more stable form of backup(harder to damage).

For your tougher backup device you will have to decided what kind of budget you have, how much data will need to be backed up and how often. If you have a great deal of data from several computers in your home or office you will likely want to use a NAS box or setup extra drive(s) in one of your existing desktops to use as a server. If you only have one or two computers or the budget just won't cover a RAID or NAS solutions you can simply purchase an external USB or eSATA hard drive, usually less than $100. This can be moved between computers and used for backing up.

Now remember to Sync your data. This means anything you update or create while away that is saved on your USB flash needs to be copied into your computer and your computer needs to be backed up onto the external drive or server.

I want to set up an internet file server how and what software is best


creating web space (internet file server) to store data over the internet or retrieve it from that PC to any other PC in the world follows the same lines as creating a self hosted website, although you arent creating a website, the principal is muc hthe same, i do it myself (but with a website as well) using a miple desktop computer at home..

first things you are going to need to do are:

1. contact your ISP and arrange for a static IP to assigned to your internet connection (if you dont have one already) anbd sometimes you have to pay for it, this gives your file server a SET WAN IP address and means you can access it via IP rather than using a domain.

2. obviously have the file server, and you will need to give it a static IP on the local network, as your ISP gave you one for the external WAN, and then you will also have to setup port forwarding so that any FTP ot specifit HTTP traffic points to the server and is forwarded and retrieved from there, but you will need software to do it, i use a neat little peice of software called WampServer (obtainable here: http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php)

this should enable you to configure as you please, download/upload/FTP setting to set up a web based storage option, and i must say it is very handy for a travelling tech like myself..

when it is eventually setup, you will use your static IP assigned to you by your ISP as a web address (eg. instead of www.mywebsite.com you will use http:\\152.133.133.133 - this means you do not have to pay for a domain.. awesome!) this is a fairly involved process and if you dont know alot about it already.. i know you will by the time your done! once you have those 3 main things setup;

-static IP from ISP
-Wampserver installed
-file server on network

i can help you out further with more specific instrctions and details if you like.. good luck!

Bullet Proof FTP Server Tutorial


This is for the BulletProof FTP Server 2.10. However, It should work fine on most following versions as well.
I'm assuming you have it installed and cracked.
Basics 1. Start the program. 2. Click on Setup > Main > General from the pull-down menu. 3. Enter your server name into the 'Server Name' box. Under Connection set the “Max number of users" to any number. This is the limit as to how many users can be on your sever at any time. 4. Click on the 'options' tab of that same panel (on the side) 5. Look at the bottom, under IP Options. Put a check in the box “Refuse Multiple Connections from the same IP”. This will prevent one person from blocking your FTP to others. 6. Also put a check in the 'Blocked Banned IP (instead of notifying client). VERY IMPORTANT! If somebody decides to 'Hammer' (attempt to login numerous times VERY quickly) your server/computer may CRASH if you don't enable this. 7. Click on the 'advanced' tab 8. At the bottom again look at the 'hammering area' 9. Enable 'anti-hammer' and 'do not reply to people hammering' Set it for the following: Block IP 120 min if 5 connections in 60 sec. You can set this at whatever you want to but that is pretty much a standard Click 'OK'
Adding Users 11. Setup > User accounts form pull-down. 12. Right click in the empty 'User Accounts' area on the right: choose 'Add' 13. Enter account name. (ie: logon name) 14. In the 'Access rights' box right click: choose ‘Add’. 15. Browse until you find the directory (folder) you want to share. In the right column you will see a bunch of checkboxes. Put a check in the following ones: Read, Write, Append, Make, List, and +Subdirs. Press 'select'. 16. Enter a password for your new FTP account. 17. Click on 'Miscellaneous' in the left column. Make sure 'Enable Account' is selected. Enable 'Max Number of Users' set it at a number other than zero. 1 for a personal account and more that one for a group account. Enable 'Max. no. of connects per IP' set it at 1
18. Under 'Files' enable 'show relative path' this is a security issue. A FTP client will now not be able to see the ENTIRE path of the FTP. It will only see the path from the main directory. Hide hidden flies as well. Put a tick in both of these.
Advanced: You don't need to do any of this stuff, but It will help tweak your server and help you maintain order on it. All of the following will be broken down into small little areas that will tell you how to do one thing at a time.
Changing the Port The default port is always 21, but you can change this. Many ISPs will routinely do a scan of its own users to find a ftp server, also when people scan for pubs they may scan your IP, thus finding your ftp server. If you do decide to change it many suggest that you make the port over 10,000. 1. Setup > Main > General 2. In the 'Connection' Area is a setting labeled 'Listen on Port Number:' 3. Make it any number you want. That will be your port number. 4. Click 'OK'
Making an 'Upload Only' or 'Download Only' ftp server. This is for the entire SERVER, not just a user. 1. Setup > Main > Advanced 2. In the advanced window you will have the following options: uploads and downloads, downloads only, and uploads only. By default upload and download will be checked. Change it to whatever you want. 3. Click 'OK’

While you are running your server, usually you will end up spending more time at your computer than you normally do. Don't be afraid to ban IP's. Remember, on your FTP you do as you want.
When you are online you must also select the open server button next to the on-line button which is the on-line Button
You also have to use the actual Numbered ip Address ie: 66.250.216.67
Or even Better yet, get a no-ip.com address

Can we reset ipaddress of fast ethernet 301p print server can u please help me.


put the current IP in your browser and configure it as per the manual

ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Printserver/dp301p+/Manual/dp301P+_manual_101204.zip

if you do not know what the current IP is, try using the mapping in Vista Network and Sharing center, your security suite, or log into your router and look for attached devices (also the drivers that are already installed for the printer should show the IP Port

I am having trouble downloading Adobe Photoshop elements 6.0 it starts to download and then the server drops out I restart the server it starts downloading again but it only runs for about five minutes.


I am presuming you are downloading it from Adobes' website

it works via a FTP so it is possible internet settings are keeping you from downloading it,

might I suggest a alternate download location of the file such as
