I try to use this below:
//write to file test
                            TextWriter tw = new StreamWriter("\\servername\test.txt");
                            tw.WriteLine("test1");
                            tw.Close();

I get illegal characters in path.

Thoughts?

notice the backslash is a special character in c#, that's why the @ is used to disable it, also you can do as:
TextWriter tw = new StreamWriter("\\\\servername\\test.txt");
