    SSL Explorer will allow you to remotely access the data held on your system not offload it to an external source.

    RM are actually now offering an offsite data vaulting solution.

    They'll do anything for a bit of money won't they. It's not as if it's an original idea either; I remember a similar service when I first ventured onto the web in 1999. :shock:

    Also check out http://www.pcpro.co.uk/labs/118/onli...roduction.html for online backup solutions. Why re-invent the wheel?

    Re: Syncing User files to a Webhost

    Thanx for all the input people.

    Sorry i didnt make it clear, our goal is to allow teachers and possibly pupils to access their files from home. Be this with a reverse proxy, remote access, or a web mirror i dont care. Which ever is best is what im looking for, security, cost, reliability and usability.

    If i can get the port unblocked and there is no issue with security i think i will go for the remote access way as it gives ME full control over who access's our files.

    Corect me if im way out but the way i see it;

    all options pose the same security risks - user passwords being the main issue. I will simply have strict password requirements if a user requests remote access.

    All options will be coming in through a secure tunnel so no real differances there.

    Wether files are deleted directly from my file server or deleted from a mirror and then when synced with the file server - makes no differance. Tape backups are done nightly.

    As said please correct me if im wrong. And is there anything im missing in way of people coming in on port 443 and then doing something to grant them access to more resources/etc.

    Minor thought from a "L Plate" Techie - we have now set up whole school access (Staff & Students) under the South West Grid for Learning Portal. It's secure and can be accessed not only in school and at home but also from libraries etc.

    Seems a good way forward for us smaller establishments.
