i need to know how to gain the ability to browse and copy files off a computer that is rigged up in lan with me. i can probably get the guy to put stuff like batch files and such on said computer. and i can simple run a scan on my how network to find his ip i am fairly sure, although last time i did that i dont think his computer came up on my scan. we had 4 computers all rigged up in lan and we were playing quake 3.(great game) and i ran a scan and i picked up (XXX.XXX.XXX.01) C/R (XXX.XXX.XXX.104) jim (XXX.XXX.XXX.106) joe (XXX.XXX.XXX.102) me (XXX.XXX.XXX.255) C/R and we will say my friend i want to target's name is bill. well that is what came up. i know he is using vista. (home i think.) and he was connected. the scanner i was using was "Advanced IP scanner v1.5" , and "zenmap" to get a better look. sadly that is about all the info i can provide. oh also i think i know his username and pasword, unless he changed them but knowing him i dont think he has. if you need more info just post what you need and i will try to provid it as needed.
