How to synchronize folders/files between between a Url site and a local system? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've developed an application that synchronize files between 2 folders, using a VPN connection. It's working smoothly, but the network administrator has asked me not to share the folder due to security reasons.

    Can I use Microsoft Sync Framework for file system with a site as source folder?

    Thansk!

  • Hi -

    You should be able to do it if you have access to the IIS site data ( i.e. you should be able to do a net use * <IIS data location> ) and this should work. Note however that we have not tried this ourselves !

  • Hi -

    When you say site - do you mean like a Sharepoint site? Currently we can download ( or sync from ) a sharepoint site but cannot upload to a Sharepoint site - this should be possible once we ship Microsoft Sync Framework V2 CTP2.

    Thanks

  • Hi Deepa, I have a new question for you.

    I need to create a filesyncprovider for a destination folder. This destination folder is available through a VPN connection, but it requires a user and password. Is it possible to indicate this to the sync provider by code?

    Thanks!

  • Oups!

    What would you recommend? Could I use impersonalization?

    Thanks!
