network folder

  I have 3 pcs in one office.  2 are connected to a network behind a sonic wall and 1 is connected to the network before sonic wall
the 2 behind the wall can talk and share fine but they cant share with the one before the wall :-(
the one pc before the wall has a printer connected via usb that id like to share with the other two.  is this possible?
I would also like to set up a shared folder that all three can access at same time.  can this be done (ie google drive or dropbox etc)
thank you :-)

I was thinking of installing google drive on all three pc's.  since all 5 users on the pc before the sonicwall can use the folder called "shared documents", I thought I would drag that into the google drive.  next on the pcs after the sonic wall, I would install the google drive and make a desktop shortcut from the shared documents folder in the drive.  hmmmmmm...  thoughts?
You can definitely use something like Google Drive for sharing.  We use a great product called Egnyte that does enterprise file sharing.

As for the firewall issue, the firewall is doing exactly what it is meant to do and block connections between devices in front and behind.  You need to setup a VPN connection between the PC outside the Sonicwall to the Sonicwall itself before you can get full communications between all the devices.

However, since they are all in one office, why are you unable to connect the one outside the firewall to be behind the Sonicwall network
