ifolder as a service

Is there anyway to get ifolder to start up as a service? We have a client on SBS6,5. They have a small (3 person) remote group that is sharing a project (autocad) with a couple of individuals at the main office. To facilitate this in the short term we put ifolder on the primary remote PC where said project lives and the other two (local in remote office) pc's have access through peer - peer. Ifolder on the primary remote pc syncs the project files back to head office so on occasion individuals at the main office can look at for review.

This is working well for them, however if the person who norally logs into the main remote PC isn't there, sync doesn't happen and they don't like to leave the pc logged on. Is it possible to set ifolder client to start as a service?

cheers

Re: ifolder as a service

Doubt it, as it needs to login as a user. Services don't have the same
sort of access as real users do

Cheers Dave

Re: ifolder as a service

AFAIK it isn't possible to set up the client as a service, however: what
about using an autologon on the client and a screensaver with a password
and a fairly short timeout?
