Dear Experts,
     I am working on a project, a database application in C Sharp. I've some situtions in application where i've to store files (i.e word, excel, image files etc); these file are in numbers so i've not save these in database rather saved on a physical drive (Hard Disk; a hidden shared folder for users which is handled through coding in application) and the file names are stored in database.
      Now a situation comes that our company has established another office in another country, and both offices are connected through VPN for data replication, but both offices has different network domains.
      As the domains are different user can't access the files from office 2.
      Now is there any way that i can provide access to them to view or save files. Or i've to save the files in database.

Thanx

 I presume that you are talking about MicroSoft systems. and different domain controllers.  You should be able to map a network drive from one machine to another.  Either using something like the map network drive from Windows Explorer

   "Tools -> Map Network Drive..."

  or using a command line:

   net use

  You can issue "net help use" from the command line to see the options that are available.

  To do this you will only need a userid and password for the "other" domain that allows access to the resources in question
