Fundamentalism is fundamentally wrong.
It's 25 megabytes or 70 MB using all the webspaces.Quote:>>Can I set up an FTP server on my home PC & transfer files from Work to home?

You might also want to check with your employer's IT department about
the security implications of accessing this FTP space from work. You may
be able to download from it, but your employer's firewall may prevent
uploading to it. If you find that you can use it if you use some
work-arounds, that's a big red flag to stop. In most companies, hacking
around their security measures can get you fired regardless of your
motives. This may be more of an issue than what Comcast says or does.
(And keep in mind that this would also apply to another suggestion
you've been given to use PC Anywhere or similar remote access programs.)
So it's possible, but you may need to make some adjustments. But make
sure that this is okay with your company's IT policy before you try.
It's less a question of "can I" than it is question of "may I".

Please excuse my ignorance. I have cable internet and wish to setup
my PC as an FTP site so I can access it from work.
Can anyone give me a brief description of how I do this, or point me
to a good website?
