We have two offices connected via an IPSec VPN over an adsl internet connection. The subnets are 192.168.0.0 and 192.168.1.0 respectively.
Daily work in one office is wanted to be replicated to the main office for backup and archival purposes.
Is there any way that the standard Windows offline files synchronisation can work here?
The problem I see is that the VNC is not transparent to NetBios? File/printer sharing? and so shared directory names are not visible over the VPN. Can the setup be improved to change this?
If sharenames could become visible, then I suppose an Xcopy command would work perfectly since the backup requirement is only in one direction?
Key to this requirement is to do the synchronisation at night on a scheduled basis so as not to interfere with the available bandwidth during business hours.
Thanks in advance - Mark
