Hello all,

So I have a user that just installed Vista Home Premium and need to access the domain for file sharing. I know you cant connect to a domain via Vista Home but I was wondering if anyone has come up with a seperate method to achieve this. I have the user VPN'ed but im up in the air after that??

Thanks Much

Vista Home cannot connect to a domain but the only way that I know is to set up FTP on the server and access files that way.

Not much hope without upgrading to Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate.
