Unable to set up offline files. I have a functioning LAN
at home and need to set up offline files for
synchronization. I follow instructions in MS Knowledge
Base article 307835 but see no "Offline files tab"
referenced step 3 of this article. I have disabled fast
user switching on both the client and server.

Any advice greatly appeciated.

Are you using XP Home? It doesn't have offline files...
A better option in my opinion, anyway - www.centered.com

Well gee, you'd think that the help files that came with
my XP home machine would say that offline files onl works
with XP pro!

I will look into centered.com.

There was some confusion that actually hasn't been more specifically
defined by MS related to offline files... :(

That is annoying--you might let Microsoft know. This has been bugged and
complained about as long as the product has been released. Not only is that
reference in the Home help file, but all of that help file is available on
Microsoft's web site, and thus a possible reference for a prospective
purchaser.

The comparison charts and feature references at Microsofts web site do get
this correct, though.

Hi everyone!

I am using the Pro version ( I checked!). I have checked the boxes as
described in articles and help sections. I still see no "make files available
offline"-tab!

Any suggestions?

The strange thing is, it used to work, but I had to re-install my machine.

Thanks!

Have you reinstalled Service Packs after the reinstall?
