Hi - Im using a servlet that is trying to read a file lying on a remote machine. The absolute path of that file is mapped as("F:\text.doc") on the machine that is running this servlet. All access permissions network permissions on NT and using policytool are set.
All the time I get an exception java.io.FileNotFoundException <file path> (Access is Denied)
The same code runns perfectly fine when the location of file is C:\ i.e. local path and not a mapped path of a remote location machine on the same network.
