Hello Everyone,

I need help here. Basically I work for EMR co we are in the process of setting up ASP version and have a client that has a server with GE Centricities that will use the HL7 to dump info for our server to pickup. What I need to do is setup some sort of network drive over the internet between the 2. I have tried WebDev folder and there server says it can find the network ( I did test map the drive to a Win XP machine on their network). They do have a domain setup that our server does not belong to and cant. What I need is the simpliest way to achive this!

Sharepoint Services or FTP are the only 2 things I think may work for you.

how would I do an FTP drive that would sync every hour or so or use sharepoint?

FTP transfers can be done via batch file and the Scheduler.

FTP can use a text file for commands so you can automate things.

So your batch file could be simply:

FTP -s:path to command file servername

Example:  FTP -s:C:\ftptrans.txt Server1

In the command file, one command per line:

USER {userID}
{Password}
cd directory
bin
prompt n
mget {filename}


You can also put a file rather than mget.

You'll need to experiment a bit to get the command script correct for your transfers.

Im not sure that will work it drop a few kb file for every peice of info it needs to transfer. Is it possible to force Server 2003 to use one nic for VPN connection and then leave one for incoming RDP connections?

Thanks,

It should be, yes.  In RRAS you can set one NIC for VPN.  If you don't use RRAS, then the router should be able to forward VPN or RDP traffic to a specific IP address.
