    Scripting.FileSystemObject Accessing Files Over a Network Shared Folder in ASP


    I am having problems using the Scripting.FileSystemObject in ASP to access
    files to see if they exist or to get file names when using a network shared
    folder. The code works fine on local files but not on shared network drives.
    I am using the server.mappath method to get the directory name, which returns
    \\computername\directory , and I have made sure that all permissions are
    setup properly. Does anyone know any tricks on how to get this tyo work?

    Thanks
    Simon

    You don't mention what type of errors you are getting (if any) but see if the following helps:
