No, Alfresco is an opensource collaboration framework. Mainly a
Sharepoint-killer

Re: Access to servers by outside clients..

iFolder does the job nicely & it's not a hassle to set up! (check this link for openSUSE or SLES Installing iFolder Server on openSUSE 11.1 & 11.2 Installing iFolder on SLES 11).
You can choose to integrate eDir users using LDAP or setup users manually (probably best if there are not that many users and you want to keep things separate).

As for Teaming, it's free up to 20 users. We've been using it for a year now (within the company only) and find it a very valuable tool as we are always on the road'.

I'd rather use iFolder over FTP due to it's friendly use and sync capabilities.

Cheers,
Wj

But Alfresco has a Sharepoint-connector so that it looks to office as

Now *that* is something that Teaming could use.

Management rarely want to hear "no", and when they do, they usually make
it plain that's the answer they expect. I usually go with "Doing it
securely would be too expensive, unless you can get *them* to front the
costs" which usually leads to a beancounter vs beancounter discussion
between the two companies, hence nothing ever gets done.

"Do what we tell you, but make sure that doesn't happen. if it does it
will be your fault, and we will make a public example of you to appease
the customers/shareholders"

What, they don't tell you that explicitly? wonders never cease...
