Upload mechanism in a distributed windchill environment

Hi all,

we are facing a challenge to use an upload mechanism in a distributed windchill environment. For that we want to use as much ootb interface technology as possible. In one approach we have implemented a solution for WTDocuments using the Generic Web Service, which is based on SOAP. Our users can click in an authoring application to send files to Windchill as WTDocuments.

This is fine and working, but it is not respecting our fileserver infrastructure. We have multiple remote sites with their own fileservers. If now a File is send to Windchil via the Generic Web Service, this file is transferred to the central Master Server and than back to the local Fileserver.
Are there any approaches out there to avoid this not needed network transfer for WTDocuments?

Thx in advance
Robert
