I would like to access my computer from a different computer. I think there is a way to set it up, but I don't know how. Can someone tell me in layman's terms how to do it? Thanks.

I saw this on another forum......it may be of help.
To connect to your computer from another computer .......bring up the web site of your Internet Service Provider (ex.:www.comcast.net) and then find the page dealing with e-mails. Some ISP's call it "mailzone", "freezone" or "mail-inbox".Once on this page a box appears to enter your e-mail address and password. This gives access to youe e-mail account.
In this way you could correspond with family and friends without using the phone.
Hope I explained it properly.

Knowslittle, if you just want to check your email from another computer, then as Prof said, go to your ISP website-may it be www.aol.com or whatever it is-then enter your username and password to check your email. But if you would like to retrieve a word file and make some modifications to a file away from home, or you wish to play with your computer settings as though you were at the computer, then follow my fisrt reply.

Bruce 319 and Prof: I really was wanting to do what Bruce 319 spoke of--but hopefully for free. Guess I can't. At the least, however, I want to do what Prof spoke of--access my e-mail--and I guess I can do that without charge.
AcaCandy: No. I'm thinking of the times I visit sons in two different states from where I live.

Thanks, johnwill. I looked at both sites and they appear to be what I'm looking for. Not sure when I will try one or another, but thanks again.

UltraVNC has file transfer and a fancier video scheme, OTOH tightVNC has simplicity and stability on it's side. :D
