Access to ArcGIS Data Sources

I hope this is the right forum for this. Sorry if its not. This is what am trying to do.
I want to be able to make a connection to an ArcGIS server from ArcMap and then connect to an Arcgis Server with a shared folder (which contains shapefiles, gdb's).

I am trying to accomplish this in a local area setting with the long term aim being general access to a wider audience outside of my LAN.

Is this possible?

I have an ArcGis Server 10.2.1 running Windows Server 2008 R2. I've installed ArcSDE and can connect to it from the Server manager and web adapter. I have a shared folder ( is this only visible to the various services?) in ArcGis Server that contains loads of Shapefiles and GDB's.

I can connect to the server from any machine running Arcmap (within my network). All I see is System, Utiliies and the SampleWordCities Map Service (as expected) but not the folder I shared with server. What am I missing.
