Sharing Files From Computer to Computer over internet?

I have followed a tutorial online and have setup the live id on the user account of mine and my girlfriends computers. Then shared the folders needed with the correct live id, but I don't have a clue how to access the files from over the internet?

Can someone tell me what to do please?

Thanks

This tutorial might help you with that. Step two covers the file sharing pretty well.

Yes it's possible but it's not the same way as network shares on the LAN, the tutorial explains how pretty well. I havn't tried this myself so I can't tell you exactly how it's done. That is what the tutorials are for.

both of you need google accounts but that is very easy to obtain.

Just go to that website and it will explain it.

Skydrive is another solution as long you have Live ID's. Might be a little easier to set up.
