virtual paths in asp

I am using the Getfolder function to retrieve a list of files in a folder and display them as hyperlinks.  I have a virtual path setup, but the asp code or Getfolder function doesn't seem to like using this and will only work with the absolute path of the folder.  Am I doing something wrong ?

Also, virtual paths to a folder on another server dont seem to work at all, can anyone throw any light on this area.  Thanks.

The FileSystem object will not accept a virtual path to the file... You must use the physical path, so the reults you are receiving are not wrong... That was not built in to the object..

You can map a "drive" to another server and then use the physical path to there... That will work for you.
