I'm looking for a tool to automate compression, transfer with crash recovery and decompression of folders over an ISDN network to upload files toward 200 NT server.

This tool can be a GUI but preferably an ActiveX component. It can use TCP/IP or netbios layer.

Thanks for your answers.

I've got only 55 point but I think it worth much more.

This could be hard if your ISDN does not maintain a permanent VPN connection that run NDIS packets.

I don't even know if this is actually possible and am canvasing the idea for a trial myself.

If it was able to, you will still need access to the client to instigate a complete restore. This can be done via Norton ghost and Ghost server.

Ghost can create compressed partition backups of a system. Ghost server can make these backups available to a client that boot via the ndis protocol.
NDis is very limited so its may be impractical so i'm posting this here for other views aswell.

Dude no problem. Do it all from a batch file and schedule it in task scheduler on your NT server , Workstation, 98 or 95 machine. You can install the task scheduler as an update component for explorer in NT. I have setup a few ISDN links which copy folders using XCOPY with optional switches like /d (only copy if file is newer). pkzip can compress the files if you like. Type xcopy /? for parameters like verify, continue on errors etc.

Hmmm.. with that many client machines, some sort of multicasting would be in order.
I know with Ghost you can multicast a build image - I wonder if you can multicast data instead ?
