Remote Offline Folder Synchronization
Posted on 2008-06-18
I am trying to create a backup methodology for our remote laptop users. The idea is to use offline folder synchronization to synchronize their My Docs folder from their laptop back to our server so we have a copy in the event that their laptop crashes. This will also be available to them when they come in to the office and use a desktop but this is very infrequent.
To curve ball is that I would like the synchronization to occur without an active VPN tunnel and without the user manually initiating the sync. Ideally, the synchronization should occur similar to the way RPC over HTTP works. Is this even possible? If so, could someone guide me through it? I'm really a novice.
Thank you very much
