Sounds (perhaps) more like a job for Samba than FTP.


I'd agree with Kevin, but if you do want FTP then maybe try a proper FTP client rather than IE as they may do what you want. Try maybe FileZilla or CuteFTP.

I've used Filezilla a lot and like it. IE's FTP functions are a [censored] piece of [censored]. (what did you expect? ;).

Another solution you might consider is Unison (or some other file system synchronizer), to make everyone's files available on the laptops even when they are not connected to a network. I use the Cygwin command line version on Windows laptops to sync with a FreeBSD central server, but I'm pretty sure there is a Windows GUI version available as well. The great bonus of the CLI way is being able to script it and make it a (mostly) hands off solution.

If you go that way, be sure all the Unison versions match on every host (so be careful with portupgrade and friends).
