What do you need to do to browse UNC shares on a windows 2003/2008 server from a windows mobile device? I have verified network connectivity, can ping the server and I can browse shares of a Vista & XP Machines on the same network. The server systems (2003 & 2008) dont seem to allow it. I have also seen posts about disabling "Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always)" and this doesn't seem to help. What is the trick?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t have a mobile device to test this, but this site will explain it.

    Thanks for the answer. However, the article you cite is describing how to publish a folder as a secure web site and then access it from pocket internet explorer. Unfortunately this is not what I'm trying to do. I want to access a shared folder from File Explorer on the pocket pc. While what is described here works it doesn't allow uploads.
