Remote Directory format RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to set the proper directory for MS Expression to connect to.  Files are located in the www folder on the server.  I have tried /www, www/ and /www/ and it says it doesn't exist when I know it does.  Need an answer quickly if possible.

  • UNC format is \\<server>\<sharename>\<folder1>...  This is the path you'd use to reference files hosted on a remote server.  Note that security applies here so you'd need to have permissions to the server, share and folder.

    If you're trying to access resources on a remote web server then you'd use http:\\www.abc.com\<virtualpath>.  The web server would need to be running and any web permissions would need to be met.
