This is actually a two-part project. I had a need to be able to share files between two networks while keeping them separated from each other (for authentication, etc).
The concept is both hardware and software based.
HARDWARE: Computer system capable of running Coldfusion (or OpenBD) - dual-nic so that it can be attached to both networks. It can run any OS capable of supporting Coldfusion or Open BlueDragon.
SOFTWARE: VAPOR (Variable Access Programmtic Organizational Resource) is the heart of the system. It will allow WARE (Wide Area Resource Extenders) to communicate to other WARE deployments/WARE Users. WARE - is deployed on a dual-nic computer in each wide-area location. It will hold the file shares that are local to that location - as well as report back to VAPOR so that other WARE locations can share those files as well.
LIMITATIONS: Because file uploads/downloads are handled by HTTP transfer - xfers will be limited to the HTTP xfer time-outs.
EXAMPLE: You have a HQ building with both a corporate and guest network. Users on both networks need to be able to share certain files with each other. You also have two outlying (wide-area) sites - each has a corporate and guest network.
This would require 4 parts - a VAPOR server and a WARE installation at HQ and then a WARE installation at each wide-area location. The WARE apps would handle the file shares that only need to be shared local to their building and would communicate back to VAPOR for shares that need to be shared across the enterprise.
