Is it possible to access my WinXP home via VPN

I'd like to access folders etc on my home computer, a windows xp home edition operating system. How/Is it possible to set up that machine in such way that I can vpn into it and see its files and folders?

If you can install software on both your home computer and the remote computer, a program like Hamachi may be the best option.

"My internet provider does not allow being a VPN server on my home connection. They block the typical VPN ports.

But I can connect very easy to my home PC using Microsft's Live Mesh"

"install Teamviewer Host on you home computer and use Teamviewer Portable on a USB stick to access you machine from pretty much anywhere, it's doesn't get much easier.

Teamviewer is free for personal use."

"OK I expect tons of ideas to appear here so my first thought is to install a SSH server and use Putty's PSCP from the Internet to get to it. Have to port forward on your home router if you use one.

You did not explicitly say you wanted to use Windows file sharing."
