For indoor scenes when i want rays falling in i use a directional light.

If you use Brazil, check out its skylight feature.

You must use a lot of intensity though. And the sun is faint yellow and not white.

Tell me more of your scene or insert a pic of it.

I use a daylight system, ships with max 6. Its a combination of a sunlight system and a skylight system. Then turn down the multiplyer of the skylight a little for better shadows of the sun.

Be aware that you turn on external Lighning in the envoirment rolout > through Logaritmic exposure control. Otherwise you'll get massive light intension.

This could deliver nice lighnin.
