  • Access a remote network drive

    I am working on a network of several PC's and a network drive all connected to an ADSL router with internet access.
    Is it possible to acces the network drive remotely, as a network place on a remote machine ? If so how ?

    Connect by using VPN?

        As Dumber has suggested, use VPN - without a doubt that would be your best option. This is a far more secure option than opening up one of your machines to the web. If you must do this, then setup FTP in IIS and forward the relevant port from your router.

          When you don't want to use VPN, then fine with me.
          FTP isn't secure either especially not to the root of a C drive. This is something you really should plan this out carefully.

          Although these ports are very very vulnerable it's your choice and not mine.
          It's your network and if it get breached then don't come here to cry.
          Ports you need to open iirc is 445, 137, 139. Setup PAT to open this to your file server.
          If you are really a system admin I expect you to know these kind of vulnerabilities.

          However if you want to keep it secure you have to think differently.
