Offline files

By georgiejr ·
Scenario: 5 PC's at home, running winxp and one with win98 (acts as a file server where all files are kept). All WinXP machines have offline files enabled. 3 PC's including the Win98 file server moved to another state. I am left with 2 machines both running WinXP and offline files enabled without any server to sync up with.

Now my question is, is it possible to sync the 2 machines that is left with me (a laptop and desktop) and with my laptop, when I go home out of state, then I can syncthat with my file server (win9.

Is there a way to sync remotely...like say using GoToMyPC?

Thank you for any suggestions or advises.

Offline files

The only thing I can think of is to make copies of the offline files on one of the XP machines and paste them as normal files (not 'offline' files) and make that PC the new 'server'. The other machine won't like to sync with those ones, but delete the secondary offline files and re-sync.

Yes, you can sync remotely. What do you think the internet is? Just a big, slow network. Setup your server so that you can access it from outside (sensible IP address, a modem that receives incoming calls ora constant ADSL/Broadband connection and the appropriate securitys). Once you dialin/connect to your server you can do whatever you want just as if they were networked.... but muuuuuuuch slower!
