There’s a good chance that we’ll have 3 users working at a satellite office (SO) before the end of the year. In the past, each remote office was a completely stand-alone LAN with their own server, phones, etc. To help keep costs down, we’ll likely just have them remotely connected, but this is where I need some suggestions.
1 user is currently working at the SO the part time, but has mentioned that his VPN connection via SonicWall’s NetExtender utility can be slow when opening large files (>10 MB).
Since we’ll continue sharing space, Internet, printers & plotters with the existing tenant, that also throws in another level of complexity.
We're an engineering firm that does a lot of CAD drafting, so something like LogMeIn doesn't seem like a viable solution due to video & input peripheral lag.
Ideally, we would like them to have access to all files from the Main Office, but minimizing the file open/save lag.
Thanks in advanced for thoughts & suggestions!
