File Sharing over WAN (Win 2000 Server Backbone)
Posted on 2004-10-15
We have a four point WAN setup between our offices in NYC, Los Angeles, Seoul, and Shanghai. This is all via a full mesh VPN setup. I just brought up the Shanghai office onto our network and have been trying to figure out a way to speed up file transfers to that branch. Each location has its own file server and our email/terminal server/database/applications server is all hosted at the NYC location.
We need to transfer 1GB + files to China from New York every night and at the current speeds it is just not working. I realize that it will never be fast but there must be a better way. I was thinking of setting up an FTP server? Any ideas?
