Laptop use in increasing amongst our users.
If a user is off-site, they cannot access our file servers directly using NCP or CIFS and have to deliberately choose to use a VPN or an alternative method like Filr or NetStorage.
Users expect their experience to be the same whether they are on or off site.
My idea is that the Novell Client will automatically detect that it cannot access the file server directly and would communicate with it using the Filr protocols instead.
This would show clear value for both the OES Client and OES itself.
Whilst this could be achieved by the OES client communicating directly with the Filr server, it would be advantageous if it could communicate with the Filr Client because cached files would be available to offline users.
