I want to provide access to my file server to my CEO. He uses a laptop which is not in my domain as he keeps on traveling between countries. Is there a way I can provide him access to my file server data by doing some chnages on permissions/rights on my Windows 2008 server.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could create a user account for you CEO on your domain, grant the user RRAS access and setup a VPN link from his laptop.

Give the right folders the right permissions (file and share!!! permissions) on you’re server (and map the shared folder at your CEO’s laptop).

The idea is that each time your CEO is connecting via VPN, the network share becomes available.

The username and password can be saved on his laptop so that he has to initiate the link.
