    How to link to file on another server.

    I have an image within an article which I then create a hyperlink.
    But instead of it going to a web page EduGeek.net I want it to goto a resource on a server.

    When I enter \\myresourceserver\Resources\Newsletter\news.pdf

    I get the following problem when i click on the image.


    //mywebdomain/mysite///myresourceserver/Resources/NewsLetter/news.pdf

    Is there anyway around this as I want to link to files/folders on another server within our domain.

    Is this accessible from the internet? If so then you will need to host the file on the web server otherwise when the link is clicked the browser will try to access \\myresourceserver which obviously won't exist as it's on your LAN. For example if the IP address of the server is 123.456.789.111 then you would use something like http://123.456.789.111/Resources\Newsletter\news.pdf. Hopefully that makes sense.
