Map Drive Over WAN.
Posted on 2011-03-15
my client has engineers around the country with laptops. We need to distribute documents remotely from the Head Office. We have a file server which is used on the LAN, it supports SMB. IP, FTP etc..
Locally the network drive is assigned to individual clients using DCHP, and is mapped as say a z: drive, which makes it appear to be a drive on the client, in other words users can work directly with the data, there is no need to copy out and copy in the files when editing .
I have a public IP address -- Is there any way that I can achive a similar scenario for remote (wan) users.
