As you know the ip address of your pc you can easily access it via any other pc given both are connected to internet and have windows xp as the OS.

Steps
Goto Control panel --> System --> Remote Tab --> Enable Allow users to connect remotely to this computer.
This should be done to pc which you want to access.
[Note :- This can cause negative effects and can allow others to access your pc if its not well protected with passwords and also if someone can crack the password down and so keep changing the passwords all the time.]

Now from you pc where you want to access the home pc
All Programs --> Accessories --> Communication --> Remote Desktop Connection

And enter the ip address of your home pc and then you are in.

Thanks

I am not sure any Company will provide this by itself but yes there can be some security flaws which can be used.

Bypassing the co firewall depends on how they have implemented it. It can be hardware or software. Hardware are less prune to breaking.

All browser resolve the domain name to the ip to browse and there is notheing known as domain but its like a layer where its easy to remember. Say you can always remember www.go4expert.com but 69.32.123.36 is not that simple.

Thanks

you can go to logmein.com and download the program onto your home computer and then you can access it from your work computer by logging in and connecting to it

You happen to make a 2 year old thread alive. Try posting your query as a seperate thread so that experts can see and respond to it.
