I don't see iFolder going anywhere lately, do you? In terms of
development and what not.. T+C maybe. It would actually be a good T+C
showcase project.

And yes Novell, despite me being highly irritated at you today I'm still
looking for good things in your products..

These are the 2.1 docs as I've been looking over that, but presumably
the same strategy holds for 2.0.

http://www.novell.com/documentation/teaming21/team21_admin/data/ble2mdl.html

Looks like it should be easy. If it's on Windows you'd just use a
Windows agent from your backup vendor to backup the flat files and use
MySQL tools for the db. If you use Linux, mount a NetWare or Windows
server that already gets backed up and copy the flat files to it and
again use MySQL tools to backup the db sending the backed up data to
that same remote NW/Win server. Then your backup software handles the rest.

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

way to go...will sync the latest versions of a file
