Remote File I/O

Hi All, I have a Server which is in the DMZ, I need to do some File I/O on
this box from my internal servers. How should I proceed with it?
My internal servers are Win2k and DMZ is Win2k3..and yes DMZ is not a part
of any internal domains, it all by itself as a matter of fact its Win2k3
(Web Edition).

Thanks in Adv.

it does depend of what kind of IO opperations you want to perform, you could
create a windows service that listen in a TCP port accesible only from the
internal IP that execute the commands it receive.
A simpler solution could be using a FTP server again accesible only from the
internal IP , you can do almost all the file io with this approach and you
do nt have to write any service.

To perform simple Read Write operations you have to create a shared resource
on the DMZ server ( unsecure )
( \\dmzserver\resource\file.txt )

It is more better to use ftp or if you want the functionality of Read,
Write, Seek etc - you will have to write your own server the will do that on
the DMZ server ( under its security context ).
