There isn't a built-in way to do this.  There are a few options that I see, and some of them might not be possible due to some restrictions.  For instance, I was asking if you could install any software on the host, not if you would run your Laserfiche server on the same host.  If you can't, then you aren't going to be able to call into Laserfiche from the SharePoint server.  Even if you can, then you would need to configure your network to allow that incoming connection to reach your Laserfiche server.  On the other hand, it might be possible to do what you want without SharePoint actually communicating with Laserfiche.  For instance, it sounds like you could simply add an iframe that points to an embedded Web Access page.

"Access" is pretty vague, can you clarify what you want to be able to do?  And do you have the ability to install software on the hosting site?

From a departmental site in Sharepoint 2016, we would like to do the following.

a.  Get a list of documents in the Laserfiche repository

b.  Let the user select a document from the list.

c.  Depending on the user choice

         Show the selected document

         Let the user download the file.

 

Installing Laserfiche on the same host where Sharepoint 2016 is hosted is not a available option.

Thanks
