I would have guessed both hosts are remote for each other. I concluded
that from "I have two computers.  Each wired to a linksys broadband
router." So I would not recommend to run NFS between them, as it is an
insecure way. Maybe have a look at


after you configured SSH successfully on both sides.

Again, if the hosts are not within a LAN and have no static host names
but dynamic IPs, you could usea DynDNS service.

Yes, telnet (server) is a DON'T under all circumstances.

Depends on how the IPs are assigned. If - again speaking about 2 remote
hosts - the IPs are assigned by an ISP, then you can't.

No corrections of what Thomas said, just some notes because of different
understanding (or guess) what the situation for Phil is (might be).
