Hi there - we have a small office and a NAS located at our boss' home. He would like to be able to access it as a mapped drive at the office. We have two LANs ( and which are permanently linked over an IPSEC VPN tunnel (Netgear FVS318N router). The VPN works fine, can remote in between the two locations, print, etc.

The current NAS is a Netgear Stora, and we found out that this model cannot be accessed over a VPN tunnel (per Netgear tech support).

So, I'd like to replace it with one that works, but which one (that won't cost us an arm and a leg)? RAID 1 would be ideal. I've contacted Seagate, and they don't have anything, and Buffalo has not yet replied to my questions.

Could you please give me some pointers? Thank you!!!
