Hi Mike,

I think we are lacking some key information in order to solve your problem.

Is your LC Server on a Mac?  If so, what is preventing you from just
dragging and dropping a folder of your files across the network from your
desktop Mac to your LC (Mac?) Server computer?

Once your files are on the Server where you want them, then you
can play around with having LC Server access them through forms
if you want to do that.  You can also put the data into a database
if you need to do that too and then access them with your LC Server.

Are you hosting your LC Server on a computer you own, or
are you using a hosting service instead?

Let us know.
