couple ideas

by Neon Samurai In reply to What do I need to connect ...

The minimum you need is a basic ftp server on the "work server" and any ftp client on the "home computer". That does open up some security issues to consider since ftp is not encrypted. Secure FTP can be setup also though it depends on the ftp server program you choose.

Since it's a business, the better idea may be a VPN connection. Your home computer becomes part of the work network through an encrypted tunnel. That would make all mapped network drives and such function like you where in the office.

The easiest option is to buy a four gig flashdrive and just carry your current work files with you. In Windows, the briefcase folders work well enough to keep the original on the flashdrive and a sync'd copy in a briefcase folder.

If it's rediculous amounts of information, you can get a full-blown usb hard drive. I think they're up to 80gig or some such thing now. It's not as convenient as a flashdrive (my 4gig looks like a stick of trident gum) but still easier to carry than a notebook.

Both usb drive options could be encrypted if loss was a concern.
