Windows Storage Server

By lcollins ·
I have exhausted the information on google searches to try and assess whether the storage files on an hp proliant ML110 G2 windows storageserver can be accessed vpn-connected users. I presume you can just map the drive and when you vpn onto the network you can still use the mapped drive. But i can?t afford to take the risk of no vpn usage as that is our primary I.T need at the moment. I have also found it difficult to find information on the licensing of this product can anyone point me in the right direction. Thanks for your help.

Windows Storage Server 2003 is a dedicated file and print server that has all functionality unrelated to file serving removed, increasing reliability and lowering the overhead on the device CPU. Built-in hardware redundancies are included in most solutions to provide a fully redundant architecture.

Thus, if you have a VPN connection to your network, users can access files stored on the WSS.

WSS is just another network storage device (NAS) implementation.

You dont need a license (besides your already purchased CAL's) to connect to your server via VPN. If you have 50 employees, and you have 50 CAL's, then your all set. Your server doesnt care that you are connecting via VPN.
