Hi,
I have a windows 2000 advance server in West coast and our other office is in East. Is it possible to use a windows XP in  our office in East to hold our shared data and sync everything with main server once or twice daily?
or I should have Advance server on both side.


Thanks

 What kind of data ??
  Files and folders Yes... user names and passwords for the domain Nope...
to achieve this you can use briefcase  

To create a new Briefcase
To open My Computer, double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop.
Click the folder in which you want to create the new Briefcase.
On the File menu, point to New, and then click Briefcase.

and that will sync data.....

you can also use 3rd party programs to do this like handybackup
located at http://handybackup.com
and you can not only back up files and folders you can syncronize them and it has a built in scheduler real easy to configure and the best part is that it can evem syncronize using and ftp protocol... this will allow you to sync data at multiple remote offices by using an ftp setver at each office...

  hope this helps you good luck

ummm yes you can but its a little confusing you have to transfer over the files from your C:\documents and settings\<User>\Local Settings\application data\microsoft\ ect ect to the sync folder then import them into the other mail client... takes too long
  What do you use for your e-mail server ?? and does it
support IMAP ?  if so you are in luck insted of configuring outlook or outloook express express to use Pop3 configure the incomming to use IMAP.. this method of checking e-mails leaves all mail on the server including all folders ( inbox, sent, deleted, ect ect..)
this will allow you to configure as many clients as you  would like and not worry about not having a message because they are all on the server.. its pretty cool... if you have an exchange server it supports it as well...
