Alright so i did some searching on google and couldn't find anything...just wondering if anybody on here has any ideas.

Here's the setup...

I've got a computer at home that i have running as a server (windows server 2008) and it hosts my website, ftp, etc etc... basically everything.

Well here's my question...is there any way for me to map a drive off that server without being connected through VPN? Reason i ask is because i have a laptop which is not always on the network (ie when im at work) and i just want to map a network drive off the server but still be able to access it from anywhere with internet.

Is this possible?

Thanks!!

Hello, I believe that it is possible, Have you thought of using Samba?
Regards,

Alan.
