Question: How is the document retrieved from storage? Is a UNC simply
passed to the client meaning the client has full access to the repository,
or is there a special service on a server that retrieves the document from a
location that can be hidden from all users?

Hi Russell,

The documents are not stored in a public repository. The client passes the
request along to the server, the server validates the user/request, etc.
retrieves the document and passes it back to the client. An example of a
setup would be:

eDocShare client is installed on a users PC in Seattle, the server could
technically be located in Chicago (this ability is removed from the trial,
it will only run on your local network). Although the users can not
directly access the documents on the server, if you're *real* worried about
it, you could move the documents off the web server and located them on a
server elsewhere on the network, eDocShare would then need to be setup to
use *impersonation*, which is difficult to setup, but we have done it
