Question: What is a good solution for teachers accessing their files when away from campus, when Novell server software is being used?

The IT Guy says:
Some schools are utilizing Virtual Private Networking (VPN) solutions to enable teachers to have access to their local files when they are away from school. If the school uses a Novell server environment, NovellÕs Netware 6 provides a robust solution: "Netstorage." It allows users to copy, move, rename, delete, read and write files between their internet-connected computer (located anywhere) and their school-based Novell storage network. This eliminates the need to email files to and from school, or use removable media (like floppy or zip disks) to move files. An overview of Netstorage as well as installation information is available on http://www.intranetware.com/documentation/lg/nw6p/index.html?page=/documentation/lg/nw6p/netstor/data/acsvsjr.html.
