In preparing to migrate from Windows Server 2003 to 2008 R2, I've noticed that I'm not able to setup a Network Place. In 2003, I had setup my website by simply entering http://www.website.com
and then could open any shortcut to it (usually from within Microsoft Office Word or Excel by clicking Open, Recent Places).
It was an effective bypass of using an FTP program to edit HTML files, XLS files and paste JPG files to the website.
When I attempt this in Server 2008 it tells me "the folder that you entered is not valid".
I'm hoping that there is a simple solution.
