  • Secure file sharing/transfer

    Hi,

    We have a network that is private.
    Our workstations provide data (files) to this network by using RDP. RDP allows a user to share the entire contents of one's C drive. I dislike this and many others in my organization also dislike this (from a security threat point of view).

    I am looking for an alternative and more secure approach. Can you help. I want the solution to work as seamlessly as possible for the users of the network.

    A couple of ideas I have had already
    1. FTP, but perhaps not as seamless as I would like.
    2. Webdav (not so familiar with)

    I appreciate your input on the best approach

    Cheers
    Caoimhin

    File shares????

    If the users can already access the relevant machine via RDP then setup shares and control access using Share and NTFS permissions.

      So you want users on desktops, who use RDP connections, to be able to access files on their local computers when using the RDP connect, is that rightr ?

        Hi

        It does not have to be RDP.
        I am looking for a way for users to get data on to network in a secure manner. The use of USB drives and the use of RDP share C-drive feature are forbidden.
        I do not have connection to the outside world so I cannot connect to services like dropbox. However the idea of an Intranet version of dropbox would work nicely.

        Your thoughts?

        Caoimhin!

          Create a file share on a server.
          Allow the users to place files on the server

          Would that meet your requirements ?

            Create a shared folder that is hidden (with $ in the end)than you create a mapped drive for the users that need the access.
