Hi

We are opening up 2 new offices in different locations from our main office. we run windows 2003 AD and all our shared fodlers are stored on a windows 2003 storage server.

What is the best way of making these shared folders available to the users in the remote offices? There wont be that many users in total at each remote site but they will need access to all the same shared files as main site users and at the same speeds if this is possible.

Any ideas?

Hi
That depend alot from how much data you stored there.
Of course you can implement DFS but for few users I don't think that. You will need another storage server for remote office. So consider an good site link and an VPN connection to remote site. In that situation the access is transparent but the speed is given from stie link speed an number of concurent users. If you use small files that will work. For large files that isn't the best option.
