    Im using a macpro with both Leopard and XP on it; and I'm looking for a way using either or of the above OS' to have a friend using Windows Vista Home Premium to connect to my computer/network from a different state.

    I wanted to share some of my projects and files I've been working on, kind of like an ftp thing. so they can transfer them to their computer.

    is there any easy way for someone (who would require a straight forward description) to getting it set up properly?

    thank you!
