Remote Access?

Hello, I just wanted to know if it is possible to, with a specific person's IP address, get onto their computer remotely and copy a file?

Ask them to open a port for ftp or sftp and transfer the file.

It depends on the operating system but google either term. sftp is encrypted ftp is not. They will have to get (s)ftp server software if their computer doesn't come with it.

sigh... port scan (BEWARE ON THIS, CERTAIN AREAS this is ILLEGAL!!) Always do some research on the ip you're scanning, and check if the laws apply or not. (where I am, it's a grey area... no laws against it) Anyways, that'll tell you what ports they have open to connect to, then get some client programs and connect to their computer (putty comes to mind... good program)

or you could just get them to send it to you... lol... what ever works!

Umm... why would you need a port scanner for legally transferring a file...?
Don't listen to this guy.

What the hell? "Don't listen to this guy"

Sigh, when you use a program IE: an ftp client, you need an FTP server to connect to, you can PORTSCAN to see if the FTP SERVER port is OPEN so you can CONNECT to it...

But hey... you don't want to listen to me... you're entitled to your opinions.

Sorry, port scanners aren't normally used unless you are cracking. I misunderstood your intentions.
