how do i share file from one computer to another. i work at home and i wish to share with work computer.
You have to options
You can share with your FileMaker Pro
You need to have your database up and running with your FileMaker Pro at all time at a specific IP-address that you can reach from outside your home
Use someone that have FileMaker Server
Have a look at any FileMaker Business partner that is located close to you

thank you. i have turned on the sharing and copied the ip address from work
computer will go home and try to share from there. do both location have to
have the same layout for this to work or will sending from one location to
another establish the layouts?
To be able to find your database your IP-address that you share from need to be a address that can be reach outside your local network.
Layouts have nothing to do with sharing.
You should read FileMaker Training Series to learn more about FileMaker. It is free

Do you have port-forwarding setup on your work router? Port 5003 to the IP address of the computer you are sharing TO.
