    I have an Access database that I need to share over the internet with one
    other person (not a mass share). What is the best option. Remote desktop?
    Networking? FTP? P2P? And, how would I set it up?

    I need to be able to use my home computer for other things while this file
    is being used, so a program that will take over my desktop will not work if
    it locks the desktop up.

    The person at the other end using the Access program barely knows how to use
    a computer, so once I set it up it has to be easy for them to continue. I do
    not have a static IP and it would be too complicated for them to enter a new
    IP each time it changes.

    I do not want to use the web pages in access. They need full access to the
    program and it has to be protected from hackers.

    Remote desktop, etc. are best if you have a static IP address. And they
    typically are used for accessing files on servers, but that is not a
    limitation. But, if you won't have a static IP address, and you don't want
    the user to "take over" your PC, then your options are almost zip.

    Can you not just give the user a copy of the database to do what he/she
    needs to do, and then that person can send it back to you?
