We have a netgear vpn firewall.  I puchased the netgear prosafe client software but I can not get it to work I have no idea how to get it set up.

I would like to use our tunnel software we are already using.

Is There A Way To Access a folder on a remoter system OR mount a virtual drive to a remote folder through a tunnel(kind of like ssh)?

What I really need is a virtual drive that connectes through a tunnel; that is a TCP port..

You can map a drive over a VPN tunnel, assuming you can get that set up. You could enable VPN pass-through and forwarding on the Netgear and set up a VPN server on your site as per instructions at:

However, the better solution is to use your Netgear router and ProSafe client. Recently working on another post I uploaded screen shots of a sample configuration that may be helpful:

However, the main site should use a less common subnet than shown in the sample,. Subnets must be different at the 2 sites so the main site should avoid common ones like 192.168.0.x, 192.168.1.x, 192.168.2.x, 192.168.100.x, and 10.0.0.0
The following may also be helpful (see "case study"

Ok! That helped.  I was setting up the client wrong and pictures are worth a thousand words!

Also, I found an app called webdrive that mounts a virtual drive to an ftp server and streams data in the same manner the file system might.  

Thanks!

Thanks Hardwarez, the Netgear client can be difficult first time around as documentation is not the best. The "webdrive" app sounds interesting.Cheers,
