Link to a folder on a company server


I have a course (11 of them actually) with a link to a folder on our server. Once published, the course will reside on a server and the link to a document on a separate server, but both inside of our company firewall. When publishing, I can not click on the link - nothing comes up.

I have tried the following:

* tiny.url (it wanted to put http:\\ in front of it - it links to an internal server, the http:\\ did not work)

* shortening the path to less than 125 characters (including spaces) - I did this by simply linking to a folder higher in the path.

* Changing from .pptx to .ppt

* Published and uploaded to LMS - the mouse turns to a hand over the link, but clicking and ctrl+click does nothing.

I can not use the resolution of putting the file in the data/downloads folder as this document may be updated and we need to be sure we are linking to the most recent document, which is why we are linking to to the folder, not the actual document.

It's also worth mentioning that on the same slide, is a link to a source page which works just fine.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
