Remote development advice

My friend and I are entrusted to develop a small web based application
using ASP and SQL Server database. We are using IIS as the web server.
My friend has some background in web programming and I unfortunately
have none, so I am taking the role of database designer and application
tester. The IIS and SQL Server (2005 Express Edition) is setup in his
PC in our puny office and do have internet access.

I want to be able to access the pages that my friend has done remotely
from home so that I could join him in the development process.

Is there a way for me to do this? We do not have a registered domain.
Is there a way for me to access my friend's PC remotely just by using
his IP address?

Any advice at all would be highly appreciated.

Regards
Ujang

Hi. If your friend's IIS development machine is live to the outside
world (I hope not), it would probably just be a case of typing his
public IP address into your browser. Then whichever web site he has
configured as the default site on IIS should appear, assuming the web
server was configured correctly.

Much better would be to keep a secondary, public machine in his office
onto which he periodically uploaded his work-in-progress, and you
accessed it from there, or ideally, sort yourselves out a domain name
and a hosting service and upload to there instead.

Hope that is of help.
