multusers at different locations.
I'm also considering moving in this direction - with two remote offices. We're a Windows 2000 user. I can see us having 8 contributors working from as many as four locations. Is there a "best" way to do that? Thanks.
I've not used the network version of CD, but the vpn mention interested me. Would that not be the simplest solution to multiple location networking? Then, you can not only access CD, but anything else you would normally be able to see on a local network of your peers.
The easiest solution is probably virtual access via a PC-Anywhere type application. As long as your firewalls accept it.
The drawback to VNC, of course, is that you need to have a computer set aside for the remote user at the home location. Real VPN solutions don't have this problem.
Windows XP has Remote Desktop Connection built in and its blazingly FAST...

...or, terminal services is as very fast and each connection is a seperate session.
VPN is cool... I just didn't know of any free VPN solutions, though they probably exist.
This is a frequently enough asked question that I wrote a knowledge base article about it:
You can probably also use IIS WebDAV to setup up a share that can be shared across the Internet. Although I have not tried this with CD, it should work fine.
