Linked Photo on Shared database not visable

Post

     On Filemaker Pro 9 I have a database of several thousand parts, with photos for many of the parts. When I'm at work, I can see each photo for each part perfectly. We share the main file remotely off one computer in the office (Open Remote >> View Local hosts.

     However, when I login from home remotely to filemaker using Open Remote >> View Favorites, I can access the database fine, save new records, etc, but all of the photos for the various parts say: "This file cannot be found xyz.jpg" where XYZ is the name of the part's photo.

     The photos are are linked to each records, not embedded. The part photos are all located in the WEB folder of Filemaker Pro installation folder. I've tried sharing out this WEB folder on the host computer running Windows 7, but this doesn't seem to effect the visibility of the  photos when I login remotely? Any help would be appreciated.
