    Remote access of user areas from home

    What i am after is some from of Remote Storage device which will sit on the network and users will access from anywhere internally of the school network. But when they are at home they are able to remotely access the same box from home through the internet (possibly VPN). Has any one managed to do something similar at there schools? and if so how, what equipment did you use and who set it up?

    Thank you

    We use Cisco VPN, you can use schools laptops and have full access or web-based VPN for partial access.

    We use WebDav. It includes connections to users' home folders. Permissions are as per domain security.
