I would like to be able to transfer large files that are about 500mb, but can easily be split into smaller chunks (say 10-100mb depending on the max size that can be transferred), from a friend's home computer 1000miles away. I'm not very familiar with FTP and have never attempted this before. I looked through cnet.com for downloads, and tried a program called community works 1.1, which is supposed to allow you to specify your IP address, and the IP address of the computer you want to swap with. It was supposed to be very easy to use and great for newbies (according to user ratings) but for some reason when I installed it and set it up, it kept giving me an error saying it was unable to get my computer's IP address, and would close down after that. I don't know if it was because I am behind a router, but it definitely wasn't because I had zone alarm running, since it gave me the same error when I closed zone alarm. Can anyone can recommend a program (having to pay is fine, provided they have a demo phase where I can make sure it works with very little tweaking, since the other end of my swap is very computer illiterate) that will allow fairly large files to be transferred easily over the net? I would prefer the ability to directly connect with the other computer, as opposed to having to upload to a website, and then download from the other end. Bandwidth is not an issue; we have cable/DSL (but are both behind routers), and we are both running win2k pro.
