hi anybody have any good ideas on how to make a shared folder available to users at two sites that are connected by a slow VPN link. Both sites run windows 2003 ad and have a mixture of xp clients.

I looked at DFS which would have worked great but the domains are differnt unfortunately.

Hi, what is the relationship between the 2 sites ? ie: child-parent, same forest, domain trust or nothing.

if we go ftp, then one side will not have the access speed required, any other ideas?

no matter what you are goin to be capped by those speeds...nothing will make life any easier - unless you wanna look at replication tools such as double take which will replicate at a bit level
