    Absolute linking to files on other servers

      Is there a way for Contribute NOT to download a document to the web server but simply point to the file:.// link? Contribute seems to be able to do this for folders, i.e. if the HRF is file://\\ntso108\project_data\ then Contribute displays the content of the folder)but if I link to a file in that folder, i.e. file://\\ntso108\project_data\ proposal.doc then it automatically uploads the document it to the site's document folder.

      We have public servers where teams can save project files. My intranet users want to link directly to files on those public servers. That way they can update the file on their server, rather than upload the updated file to the documents folder on the web server .
