Default Setting up remote share

I would like to set up a remote share that is accessible via the Internet from my home computer. I am already familiar with setting up network shared folders, but only within a LAN environment. I would imagine the same sort of basics apply to a WAN environment as well, but I am unsure as to what port numbers, if any, need to be forwarded for me to connect to the share via the Internet. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Send a message via MSN to office politics

to access your lan's file and print sharing from a remote location, you can setup a vpn connection to your home network

lookup vpn client and server on the following link

or you can use pc anywhere to perform the file transfer. or you can setup an IIS (web) server to share your files.
