Connect to my home network

I have a home network running all computers on XP Home with a D-Link router (New 802.11g - 108 mbps).

I want to access a computer on that network from my network at my office. All computers are running XP Home.

All computers are completely up to date with the most current XP updates including SP2.

Is this possible?

There's a 15 day trial that is AWESOME!!! I guarantee you'll love it and it will make your life SO much easier!
***MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PERMISSION from your network administrator before you attempt to install this on your office computer, only they can install it correctly on thier stuff so that you don't hose up your machine or screw up the network at work. On your home computer you can set it up any way you need since you are your own network administrator @ home Happy
