Does any one know of a way to connect to a SBS 2003 Server to access files like a VPN connection but utilising HTTP. I have a satellite connection with a Latency of 900+- and the VPN times out and is so slow, I was thinking if there was not a way to connect to the server but using a HTTP connection.

Many thanks in advance.

That feature was only introduced in SBS 2011 Remote Web Workplace unfortunately.

There isn't anything else built-in to SBS 2003 that will do that so unfortunately you are going to be stuck with VPN access on SBS 2003.

Sorry

If you move the files into SharePoint you can certainly access them via HTTP (using Remote Web Workplace).

Alternatively, you can add a "Windows Folder Web Part" to SharePoint which will browse through to an NTFS Share on the server.  I haven't tried this at all -- and since SBS 2003 is beyond mainstream support you probably won't get much help if you can't get it to work.
