In Windows Server 2012 Essentials is such a thing as remote access via the Web. In particular, I've found you can download from your server from the web interface.

Hello Life,


Yes, One of the key benefits of Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials is “Anywhere Access” for a business’s remote & roving employees.


This benefit will continue and be enhanced in Windows Server 2012 Essentials, as described in its Datasheet on


"Remote Web Access provides a streamlined, touch-friendly browser experience for accessing applications and data from virtually anywhere via an Internet connection using almost any device. Windows Server 2012 Essentials also provides an updated Windows Phone app and a new app for Windows 8 clients, allowing users to intuitively connect to, search across, and access files and folders on the server; files are also automatically cached for offline access and synchronized when a connection to the server becomes available. Windows Server 2012 Essentials turns setting up virtual private networking (VPN) into a painless wizard-driven process of just a few clicks, and simplifies the management of VPN access for users. Client computers can leverage a VPN connection to remotely join the Essentials environment without the need to come into the office.
