share a folder on the internet


hardware monkey
when it comes to networking, i'm pretty much a novice. what i need is to have a folder on my win7 machine that i can assign a URL to so i can access files from anywhere. between win7 and my router (D-Link DIR-655), i would think there is a way to do this without any extra software. someone please do your best to give me setp-by-step instructions. :squareeye

edit: do i use the virtual server option on my router?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
