I'm trying to copy files/folders from remote computer, and the problem is that the folders i'm trying to copy are mounted remotely on that computer - the actual file server on the remote is a NAS device not directly accessible.
both remote and local system are running Windows server 2003
the copy itself is to be used by "emccopy" which is the best remote copy software IMO, but it pertains to any copy, xcopy, etc. or even Windows Explorer.
i have the firewalls open at both ends, so i can open \\remote-ip\c$ (or d$) alright. but i cannot access \\remote-ip\remote-folder. It doesn't matter if , on the remote i map the share to a drive letter, i cannot use it, so if map on the remote "remote-folder" to I: for example i cannot use \remote-ip\i$.
I also tried the "junction" program from sysinternals to create a junction in the remote system on a local drive to the remote share, but this is not allowed by Windows, junction documentation actually states that.
