Replicating Files between 2 servers without Active Directory

Hi all,

I have 2 load balanced servers geographically dispersed locations and would like to replicate a set of files between them such that I only need to "update" one of the servers. The servers are Windows 2003 R2 Standard and DO NOT have an active directory controller in the mix.

Everything I have read on google is related to setup with Active Directory only. When I tried to muddle through, it looks like I can use DFS with a stand-alone root but then Replication is not available (I think). Other articles a la Google mention FRS as an option but every search on FRS refers back to DFS.

Does anyone have an article on the web they can point me to to configure FRS on 2003 R2 servers?

Thanks very much.

Thanks AJ,

I've downloaded the proggue and it looks promising but would still like to see FRS work.

Your response is much appreciated.
