    Also you can't have 2 DMZ's

    Depending on what solution you use hopefully you just setup the port forwards to the IIS server and that then redirects to the network drives etc.(so IIS doesn't doesn't need to be on the file server)
    Cheers, that makes more sense to me. We use port forwarding at the moment, and I've never understood the need for DMZ.

    We use exchange 2007 for this.

    outlook web access has a documents tab, our users were told how to do it

    type in the document box: \\fileserver\username$

    and it brings up up there home drive.

    uses ad and ad's drive mapping

    Ye i read about the fact thats possible although unfortunately we don't have the money for an exchange server and licensing at this moment in time so I'm looking for more towards open source free solutions, as I don't mind putting in the extra work.

    Still on Exchange 2003 here, but that is useful to know.
