Mirroring file server

I need help figuring out how to do this:
I have 2 offices, one on the east coast and the other on the west coast. Both have T1 connection. The office in the east coast login to the server on the west coast via VPN. They use the file server located in the west coast and save all their work on it. Sometimes they complain that the server is too slow and it takes a while to open files.
Is there away to have a mirror server in the east coast that will replicate files from the west coast server and have the same exact copies? So if someone make a change on a file, both server will have the same copy?
What is the best way for doing such thing?
Thanks

Thanks SysExpert, this will help. If anyone else suggests soemthing else, please let me know.
You can also evaluate IDEM for your folder mirroring and check Faqs page from
http://peccatte.karefil.com/software/Idem/FaqIdem.htm

The software does synchronization including Mac files on Windows volumes and Acls replication.
It can also be used via WinAT.
