We are a team of native-client/webforms developers who have been tasked with developing an internal intranet SharePoint system for our team.
We want a WebPart that displays sets of files on internal shares, allows selection of subset(s), and then downloads the files to the local machine.
Basically it's a builds/test-artifacts/documents "getter" scenario.
We created less elaborate web sites that do somethihng like this (as proof of concept.)
However, no matter what we do with our WebPart, it will not allow access to non-local(host) shares, files, etc.
The WebPart CAN access said shares/files when the entire thing - client (IE session) and debug[ger/gee] etc - are run on a single dev box.
However, when we attempt to run the client on a different machine accessing the dev box (in a server role), the code cannot access the network resources (for example, File.Exists() and Directory.Exists() fail.)
How can we make this work?
