For mobile users, I've been messing around with iFolder. Haven't quite 
gotten there yet, but the idea would be that the iFolder server would be 
universally accessible (internal/external). This would allow users to sync 
their files regardless of where on the planet they were at any given 

I have it running under OES (Novell) okay, but there are some howto's out 
there on setting it up as a stand-alone. Anyone else using iFolder 3 yet?
