Brief Description: I want to be able to use my asp.net application to access files on another server used as a file system(storing .pdf, .xls, .doc files etc.).
In Depth Description: Right now the web page has a gridview. The gridview has links to documents using paths like \\servername\filename. Our server guys said that this method would be using a CIFS protocol and would not work. That we would need to set it up so that the application accesses the file through a service account or something. Does this make sense to anyone and can any provide a more in depth explanation. What would we have to change programatically to have our .net application access files on another server?
