    I have tried to find some answer that makes sense about this but just haven't.
    At work i use ShareTool client to connect to my Mac mini with ShareTool server running, this is incredible easy and smooth.
    I can listen to all my home music, remote desktop to manage my mini and reach all disks available in my home network when needed and up/download files just as easy as with local disk.

    Does anyone know of a (somewhat similar) easy way to connect to an OS X Lion mac from a Windows computer to get access to files on the home Mac?

    VPN seems like a foreign language and a complete mess to set up manually... or?
    And are there clients for windows that can connect to OS X with VPN?
    I tried TeamViewer but i couldn't even move a file from the Mac to the Windows computer... it got refused "not a public folder" or something like that.

    All i want is to have my home OS X folder/disk mounted like a local folder in windows so i can up/down some files, just like ShareTool in OS X.
