Use the UNC.  i.e. use the fully-qualified path across the network, such as \\othercomputer\computersharedfolder\datasource\jdfolder\filetocreate.txt

I don't know if you can copy to a shortcut but use file copy like this:

Filecopy "c:\testfile.txt","\\NetComputer\Sharedfolder\testfile.txt"

works for me fine!

had to change to
Filecopy "c:\testfile.txt","\\NetComputer\c\Sharedfolder\testfile.txt" (added \c - drive)
but only works of drive is maped

to map the drive programmatically:

Dim wsh As New IWshNetwork_Class

wsh.MapNetworkDrive "Z:", "\\tjhdev\TomcatHome"

'' do your filecopy

wsh.RemoveNetworkDrive "Z:"

make sure to reference Windows Script Host
