share directorys over the net?

What OS/ What Webserver?

if you just want it in a lan, setting up file sharing (SMB) would be the best way to do it. If you want to do it from over the internet, the simplest would be setting up an FTP server as well (www.guildftpd.com for a good free one) as this will allow you to set up different paths to share. If you have to do it via the web acccess, you could try creating a shortcut to the folder you want to share and move it into the /htdocs area. that may work, i dunno if you will have to chmod the folder though.

you only need to map a drive
net use p: \\yourip address\sharename

or
net use p: \\yourip\drive$

Everyone else in the world can do this as well

wont work, it uses netbios and thats blocked outside of the lan on plusnet due to virii using open network shares to spread.

If you use hamachi ( http://www.hamachi.cc/ ), you can create a tunnel between 2 (or more) computers so they appear to be on the same network.

I use it to access my home computer from the office. At its simplest, it just allows you to access shared directories over it, but you can also use it to run VNC or other remote access programmes.

Because of the way it sets the connection up through a mediation server, it doesn't need any special configuration of your router.

Might be worth a try.
