Are the machines already networked? If so, you need to share the folders you want to access on the remote machine's HDD. Here's a tutorial that might help: Sharing and Permissions

Comp 1 = This computer
Comp 2 = Other computer

I wanna send an file to Comp 2 via Comp 1.
But i wanna use the file when its not anymore on Comp 1, but Comp 2.

hi CommandoBob

sure its possible,there are a few solutions, i think the easiest would be to give one of the computers harddrive full access through the network, that way you have to install any programs
( make sure ur the only one in the network when it's shared or ppl you trust )

another way is to use a ftp program

you can also control the other computer / harddrive, with example Remote administrator, also msn / skype

hope this helps
