Hi all,

Thanks in advance for any insite you guys are able to give me. I need to connect two offices together (both coasts). The problems that I've come across in trying to get this set up is that both offices need access to semi-large files. (<100mb)

Problem 1:
Each office has it's own PDC. I *THINK* I would rather that their office connect to our PDC and just use their server for file storage. Can this be done easily, efficiently, without going through VPN? They connect to us through VPN now for e-mail from our Exchange box and it's very SLOW for them. I am thinking that I'd just like to use the VPN for the people that are connecting through hotels and unsecured internet connections.

Problem 2:
I'm toying with rolling out CVS for both programming AND design staff. Is there an easy method to this going with the thinking from Problem 1?

If anyone has any insite on these two questions or any other advice/experience they can send my way I'd greatly appreciate it.

if this is a coast to coast client/server network you need something better than a vpn for sure. if this is a client/server type network are you in the same forrest? who is the parent domain? if this is for a moderately sized company with alot of trafic going back and forth then you should contact your local Telco about a frame relay. unless you are running NT 4 or earlier there is no such thing as a PDC or BDC so both places would have to have a PDC. they could however replicate to each other for synchronization purposes.
