Hi,

There is a number of ways that you can go about implmenting the remote access.

1a) Site-To-Site VPN between your main office and the remote office(provided that you have the hardware to support it)

1b) Client-To-Site VPN (could be an IPSec or clientless SSL VPN)

2) A cheaper alternative would be to use NetDrive to simulate an FTP site as a network mapped drive (http://www.netdrive.net/home.html)


Of course depending on which solution you decide, you have to weigh the security aspect against the cost and ease of use for users....

hope this helps :)

no problem.... glad to be of help.....

but I have got to remind you again that Netdrive runs in FTP which a an unsecured way of sharing resources..... only use it to share non-sensitive data of your corporation :)
