I recently purchased a cloud server to use for backup. This server is configured with public IP address, and has Windows Server 2016 installed on it.
On the other hand, I have a Windows Server 2008 behind a firewall, and the local area network.
My intention is to create a mapped drive on the remote server (cloud server) and deploy it by group policy (from windows server 2008) so that the users can backup their files to their own cloud directory.
I already installed and successfully configured Routing and Remote Access role on the cloud server, I tested connecting to it from a dial-up connection on one of my machines on the LAN. This is working fine. Now what I need is to map this folder using Group Policy on the LAN from windows server 2008, so that the drive is showing without them needing to connect to the dial-up connection prior to login. Is that possible somehow?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
