'Net Access of Home PC - Guides?

Hi All - I’m looking for a guide that walks me through how to set up access over the internet of my home PC. I would like to access files on my hard drive occasionally when I am on trips or at work, and of course I would like to so securely.

There have to be some guides posted out there that explain what I need to do to set this up with Windows XP, and hopefully it includes all the appropriate security measures, and how to deal with software/hardware firewalls, opening ports, etc.

Thanks,

Badblue is pretty handy for this

It lets you set up specific folders you want to access, and lets you log in to your IP. No special configuration of firewalls needed, and it’s freeware too.
