Depends what kind of "sharing" you want to do. How much data are you
sharing? Who will be accessing it (public or internal employees only
or customers, etc)? What kind of internet connection will the parties
You could setup a vpn and remote users could access files on your
VPN works quite well but I have found some graphics issues using Remote
Desktop in that it does not seem to like OPEN GL and seems to hang,
graphically, every once in a while. VNC works as well but the resolution of
the image on the client side is pretty poor.
I have actually used my Palm TX and my wireless home network to VPN into my
desktop at work and do some minor stuff in SW, open large assemblies, look
at drawings etc.
You might also look at PDMWorks Enterprise (Conisio) as it has a web client
that allows remote locking/unlocking files. But first, you must answer the
previous questions to see if this is the correct solution.
Sounds like a simple VPN with data mirroring would do the trick then.
Once the 3gb of data is mirrored (not that much anyways) you can just
run an update a few times a day to keep things in sync. A free
mirroring software that I use is called syncback from 2brightsparks.
You have to click around to find the free version, but it is there.
You can also purchase VPN capable routers for $100 or so. Although if
you have a T1 line then I'm guessing you have somebody that can setup
someting for you anyways. Good luck!
