We have Sharepoint 2007 behind a Cisco ASA and ISA 2006 published for External access. External access is working fine. We would like to provide external acess via SharePoint to an internal file share on a seperate member server. What is teh easiest way to do this?

All servers are on the same domain
All users accessing the file share and SharePoint are domain users
Users need the ability to open files and save changes back externally
Using Windows Integrated Authentication

Thanks

The whole point of sharepoint is to get your documents away from file shares and put them up on document libraries within sharepoint, is there a reason you have not migrated them yet?
if you can't move them, then allow vpn connections into your network for this type of access.

Yes we are eventually going to move all the documents into SharePoint - but this is a phased moved. We want access to happen without a VPN connection. I am well aware of document libraries and need to provide File Share Access via Sharepoint only.

i think that there is a file access web part or something like that, but I am not sure if you will be able to access the files through the sharepoing interface, it just shows you the files in sharepoing and when you try to access it may want the internal file locations...

I used a Virtual Directory in IIS on the file share to access the share. Then published it through ISA and SharePoint. I can now access a file server and edit/save changes.
