How to display image that has UNC path?

Hi, I am trying to display image where its src parameter is UNC path like the following:
<img id="imgViewer" src="\\user-89dc945c9a\3\Download.gif" border="0" alt="Download.gif" >

But the image does not appear.

if src parameter does not accept UNC paths is there a script that allow me to display this image?
Please help

I don't know if there's a direct solution.

"file:////user-89dc945c9a/3/Download.gif" is the right way.
but u may not be able to view it from an hosted page:
i think it is a security restriction

Do u want the page to display an image from local network ?

couldn't u install a little webserver on user-89dc945c9a ?

Is ur code dynamically generated ?
why can't u put ur pictures with ur webpage ?

Zvonko , Do you mean: "file:\\\\user-89dc945c9a\3\Download.gif" and not "file:////user-89dc945c9a/3/Download.gif"

however both case does not work.

Actually if I open the html page that contains that tag from the LAN(inside firewall) it works fine but it does not work if I open the page from browser behind firewall...any suggestions?

I think the best way is to copy files programatecally to the web page and delete them after finish.

it is the purpose of such restriction.
u need a little webserver on ur machine.
