You will have to specify what kind of connection you have, and information about any firewalls, both hardware and software. Also, how exactly do you want to "access" it?

I got a broadband DSL connection. Assuming there is no firewall, is it possible to access my C drive, my desktop etc?

It's possible, though incredibly stupid! Opening up file sharing directly to the Internet with no protection is just asking for a major problem, probably within minutes of connecting!

A much better way would be with something like UltraVNC, which offers file transfer, remote control, and encryption of the link.
