I don't think this is possible but maybe it is...

Is it possible to network 3 to 5 computers (or more) if they were across the city? I don't know the exact terms but let's say I want to get a file from my friend who also has a cable modem, I could click on Network Neighborhood and see his computer there. I know there would have to be safety features added. Or this can't be done because of the swithers and routers Comcast uses? Is there any other way to have this done?

You should be able to network the computers across the network.

NetBEUI isn't routable, but you should be able to connect via file shares via TCP/IP.

I believe you could connect via \\ipaddress

I'm sure that other network geeks on here will post more information. I'm at work and my brain is fried right now.

If you are both using cable modems, the chances of you being on the same network are small. I believe Class B (or C?) addressing is used, so you most likely aren't using the same subnet.

However, I'm sure you can set up yourselves on different sites, which is basically expanding your network over different subnets. In order to take advantage of sites, you do have to have a domain though.

Or you could just set up FTP sites on each other's computers and give each other usernames and passwords to have access to the files you want to share. Remote Access is also a possiblity...

What OS are you using?

So set up a website with a username and password and share files using http? What's a 16kb/s cap? I download files via ftp all the time on my cable modem and never noticed any speed cap. 16k is slower than a modem... I find that one hard to believe.

I guess all you would have to deal with at this point is the slow upload speed from your provider.

These damn cable modem companies allow you to download much quicker than to upload (or get downloaded from).

I have a cable modem and I have no cap. At least not at 16 kb!

My upload is great...I download stuff off of my FTP site all the time from work...and vice versa.

You do NOT want to enable NetBIOS over your internet connection!!! Thats the most common method that script kiddies use to hack you and/or use your machine as a drop site and/or attack launch point. It's quite simple to do. All they have to do is scan a range of IP addresses for port 139 and presto...they have you. The also cannot typically be tracked down as they perform these vulnerability scans for other machines they have compromised. Your typical script kiddie has access to dozens of machiens and a serious hacker has full access to hundreds (if not thousands) of machines and chain the connections across different backbones so as to limit the ISP's ability to trace the packets and scan the logs.

The best way to transfer occasional files to/from each other would be to use some sort of IM application - like MSN Messenger, ICQ, etc.

If you are looking to frequently transfer files back and forth, you'll want to look at setting up an FTP server. Alternatively, if you are looking for Windows networking functionality, you should setup a VPN.

There are many other methods to share files, but whatever you do, do not use NetBIOS over the net without encapsulating it within some form of encrypted protocol (ala VPN) and get yourself a firewall - regardless of if you start transferring files.

Ciao.

the VPN "virtual private network" should work for this situation as well. You just have to make sure you have win2k somewhere running the VPN server. If you don't want to install win2k on your system, or don't have another computer, you can always try to run it with vmware. (virtual machine).

With vmware, you can have both OSs running at the same time with two different IPs
