Are the any tools available for OS2 so once can create links to point to another directory so one can gather together different directories within under the same LAN resource that the users accesses? Sort of the same way that can be done on a ftp server; where directory alias can be greated. Are there any of the existing shell extensions that allow this?

There is something called Toronto virtual file system. I downloaded it once but never tried it out.

By the way, end of next week I'll come to Sweden...

Well, downloaded and installed Toronto Virtual Filesystem and it works as charm and does the job needed - highly recommend it.

Directory and Security Server for OS/2 Warp/Lan Server (by IBM - original rel date 1996) is another option if you can get a hold of it. Somewhere in WSeB (if you can find it) there's a scaled down capability that may also suffice.

DSS for Warp Server is also mega overkill as LAN resources can be grouped, combined and managed across servers in a domain, domains, network topologies, and even network OS's (Including WinNT, etc). It includes domain, resource and logon control as you'd expect (fully GUI) extended to all Warp resources and many non-Warp resources on other supported platforms. Clustering and redundancy are also supported to (currently consiered) idiotic levels.

If you've used the LS/WSeB GUI for domain, group and resouce control, you'll find the DSS addon self expanatory.

Hmm ok, true, missed that one out since I have the CD somewhere. Pitty is that IBM killed that product realy fast, think it was available here in Sweden for 1 or 2 month!!
