Win2k Offline Files

I've decided that I should actually use Offline Files rather than My Briefcase. (See this thread)

In Win2k help, it tells me to first make my system use offline files (I'm assuming the files on the network). To do this, go to Tools, and click on Folder Options. From Offline Files tab, I made sure Enable Offline Files is selected.

Now, the next step is to make the folder available offline. The help file continues to tell me to click on the shared network file or folder you want to make available offline, click on File and click on Make Available Offline.

I don't have a Make Available Offline when I click on the shared network folder. This happens when I'm both on the desktop and on the remote (laptop) machine.

Help.

What OS is the Remote Machine (that the share is located on) running? Does it have Terminal Services installed??

There's a bug in Win2k that any server running Terminal Services cannot support Offline Files.

If anyone knows a workaround, I'd be happy to hear it as I've been trying to resolve this issue here in my office!

Both machines are Win2k Service Pack 2.

How can I check to see if Terminal Services are turned on or off?

Look in the services in the administrative tools of the control panel.

Are these two workstations or is one a server?

Does the server have Roaming Profiles setup? If so, that could be the problem... Here's a technet article I found:

Both machines are workstations. One is a desktop and one is a laptop.

Do they log into a domain on the network? are they just in a peer to peer network? If in a P2P network are their workgroups the same?

I'm kinda stretchin here... I have a very similar problem at work. All of our win2k servers don't seem to support offline files, and are terminal servers. Not sure if we have something configured wrong or not but the "make available offline" option doesn't appear for us either.

I am in a remote office, so when my computer was configured, I was listed in the main office domain, but I don't log into it. (When I go to My Computer it says I'm part of XYZ domain, but I have nothing to do with it -- it says this on both computers)

Figured it out with Microsoft's help.

I had to go to my laptop and browse out to my shared directory. From there, I had to click on the 'Make Available Offline'

My beef with the damn_product is that all the files that are made available offline are cached in ONE big HUGE directory. No attempt is made to retain the directory structure.

Um, no thanks. I'll continue what I was doing before.

So the share itself needs to have this option enabled and then you can make files/folders under it available offline?! Hmmmm..
