    Mapping a network drive using certificate but not a VPN - possible?


    Hey,

    I currently connect to our office server by way of an installed certificate onto my PC and then using a VPN which is first established before I can map a shared drive and work with the files stores there.

    Is there a easier way of doing this ? ideally looking for a way of keeping the shortcut on my desktop and having the ability to drop and drag files between the two without having to connect and then disconnect a VPN.

    This possible at all?

    Cheers

    The only way to use a certificate, is if you are using a Domain. VPN is for remote file servers, not in house. If this is an issue with a remote share, then the troubleshooting needs to be done there, not at the other end.
