Remote user accessing files on file server via WAN.
Posted on 2010-08-23
I have a client who wishes to have sales associates in the field access a database on their server remotely via a WAN connection. In otherwords, they have laptops and connect to the internet via a 3G connection. They need to initiate an application off of their local hard drive and access the data mapped to a network drive on the server. Is the best way to do this via a VPN or can remote desktop connections do this or is there some other way to do this? I know how to do this in the office connected locally but how can they do this remotely via an internet connection?
