The url for a network share would be like:


(5 slashes after "file:")  Is that what you're asking?  Provide more details if you require further assistance.

That URL should work for IE as well as Mozilla.  The key is to just use "file:///" followed by the URI (swapping "/" for "\").  I would think it would work in mac also, though I have no way to test it.

UNC rather, not URI.  Sorry.
