I have a law-based client that wants its clients to be able to log in, and view their documents on their server. Obviously due to the nature of the documents, they want their clients to only be able to read their own documents, and not even be able to see other clients names, much less folders or documents. I would think that IIS would be the best way to handle this, but I need a little advice. Their server is SBS2003

Hi, how many clients are we talking about? FTP might be the way to go then using deny access to folders but if anyone has a better idea please post.

I agree with Monty, FTP is the most secure way for them to remotley access their files. If you need a free FTP server software (easier than SMB setup), search up ZFtp.
