Welcome Suresh

Do you want to set it up as a file server on a network at the same location or access it from a remote location ?

I use the Free version of TeamViewer to access my home computer from work when I just need to view some files or transfer small files back & forth. But I did transfer 16gb of files once for an all night connection
