Semi retired old time computer nerd who started programming on a Commodore Pet.

Since I'm also active in the Physics forum I should add that I started as a theoretical chemist, moved into solid state photochemistry and finally worked in industry as a colloid scientist. I only became a full time computer nerd in 1997.

If you use unix then I'm fairly certain Apache can do this, possibly with the module to do URL rewriting. It's basically the same approach as I described.

comment Network Service account accessing a folder share
@pip: But you can create a local resource with the same username and password on the remote machine, then grant that account the required access. The end result is the same.

comment Suggestions for a productive hardware setup with excellent virus protection
@Chris: I would (indeed I do) run a full scan occasionally e.g. over a lunch break. Whether you could trust developers (a race related to Orcs but less evolved :-) to do the same is debatable.
