Display shared folders in RWW (sbs 2008)

I know how to access and display shared folders in RWW via OWA (Documents). This option while OK, calls for the user to log into RWW, then go into OWA, but, the folders are  read only. Is there another way to display shared folders without having to go thru OWA, and also allows the option to write (save) to the folder? Please keep in mind this is SBS 2008.

Hello xzay1967,

the option you are configuring is read only, this cannot be changed.
if the users have pc's in the domain, they can just take over their pc's via rww and see the shares.
another way is to make a VPN to the sbs and see the shares that way.


Regards,

Thank you Suppsaws, that is just what I thought; I wanted to confirm this thought. I have been following your sbs responses, and I am impressed with your knowledge of sbs. Is there a medium that I can reference that you participate in? I am new to the sbs realm, and like it very much.
