Windows Want to be able to access your machine anytime, anywhere? Can't be bothered purchasing a domain name and configuring Dynamic DNS? Microsoft has a solution: the 'Windows Internet Computer Name' - a unique domain name for your computer. There is one small catch though: you have to be using the next-generation networking protocol IPv6 which, although thoroughly integrated into Windows Vista, isn't supported by most home routers yet.

Actually I think celt has a point. Even though the protocol might be relatively quiet, think about how many more people will be using it to connect to things like SMB shares. Most people don't have remote access to their home PC's now because they don't know how to set it up. If this makes it so much easier, then people will no doubt be mapping their My Documents from work or wherever else they want to all the time.
