If it is not possible to create a virtual path to the networked folder (because of security-reasons), you can always use the code-behind to impersonate another user in order to access that file.

i've found the solution, i've made an iis virtual directory in my pc with a source directory to that network folder. this solution gave me the ability to make an iis website without needing to do it in that server
