Trying to turn my computer into a server

Hello,
Am trying to turn mu computer into a server so that once it is connected to the imternet I can access files from it from another computer.
I guess I would need a website so that when I go to that website I can access my comuter. Lets assume that I have a java file on my harddrive. And its already complied using JCreator. How do I access this java file ( well the fuctinality of this java file ) from another computer. I guess I would need some type of interface written in java to interface with the internet and to interact with my computer from another web site.
Can someone get me started on this project? Like a skeleton code and I'll work on it. I just need a starting place.
Thanks in advance.


yours respectfully<br />Avin Sinanan

Try installing a web server. You can use apache. It's free and easy to install ( http://www.apache.org ). You don't need a domain name as long as you know your ip address. (windows? type ipconfig at the command line.) I am assuming that you have some direct connection to the internet and not just using a dial-up.
