Folder Redirection

I have a server named LufkinData1  and another server named SanData1  
they are connected with an OC3
I want my San Users to be able to use the Public folder which is on LufkinData1. But it look like the folder is on SanData1

Example:
They navigate to \\SanData1\Public\HRDocuments the Public folder will redirect them to \\LufkinData1\Public\HRDocuments.

This is a highly critical project so please any answers ASAP would be appreciated.

You can point to one folder, and , Transparently to the users, they are connected to another that you define !

What is the OS's on the servers?

You could mount the share from LufkinData1 as a folder in the shared folder on SanData1. When they open 'HRDocuments' folder it will look at LufkinData1 for the data.

Create a shortcut to the folder on SanData1 that points to the folder on LufkinData1.  Share the shortcut.

Ok.  I've got a couple of them set up that way, but maybe I missed something in your requirements.

The program looks for M:\somefolder\public\
I need on SanData1 to have the somefolder and then public be mapped somewhere else.
